CNCD-11.11.11 presents two new pedagogical tools
The "Centre national de coopération au développement" is the voice of 90 Belgian international solidarity NGOs and organises every year the 11.11.11 operation which aims to finance around fifty development projects, beyond its mission of awareness raising and advocacy on the issues of global citizenship.
We interviewed Maxime and Sébastien from the CNCD on the occasion of the release of two new educational tools they have organised: respectively the latest edition of the revue Le Monde en Classe and the reissued educational kit on climate justice.
With these two tools, their aim is to offer teachers, facilitators and other educational personnel activities on the themes dealt with by CNCD-11.11.11, with a kind of continuity since the magazine presents tools for children aged 6 to 12 years old, and the educational kit is intended for an audience of 15 years old and over.
The latest edition of Le Monde en Classe deals with food sovereignty, which leads to question the ecological and social impacts of our food on, on the one hand, biodiversity and the environment and, on the other hand, farmers and peasants. The review is then divided into three sequences according to the difficulty of each. Maxime describes them: "One sequence presents for example the links that can be made between the production of food, raw materials and our consumption, sometimes after processing. To illustrate this sequence, we were inspired by a dossier on cocoa produced by Oxfam-Magasins du Monde and we made a comic book that tells the story of the cocoa bean's journey until it becomes chocolate. It helps to address the issue of its impact, particularly on forests and cocoa farmers". The other sequences compare conventional and fair trade, with an activity on the mechanisms of agroforestry, and discuss access to land through interviews with farmers from different parts of the world. "Our aim with Le Monde en Classe is really to co-construct, to produce these educational tools with other NGO members, who also have a lot of data and information to share".
Sébastien's now presents us the educational kit he led the republication of. This educational kit is on the theme of climate justice, and deals with issues related to soil, water and forests, as well as the challenges of the Paris Agreements and how to implement them today. "The kit can be used independently by teachers or youth associations, and training sessions are organised to present the tools. But in any case, each tool has a sheet with a contact person in case of questions". The kit is full of all kinds of tools for a playful and diverse approach. "There are paper tools, films, short or long, on a USB key and external tools, for example, which can be brought into the classroom. This was the case with GoodPlanet's 'trouble the waters' exhibition, with Quinoa's string game or with Associations 21's Cap 2030 compass".
