Education 4 Diversity: curriculum and ethos responses to refugees and forced migration


First a brief introduction summarising Alex’s experience of being a refugee and Jonathan’s experience of being an immigrant in the developing world. We introduce (using true stories from Alex’s early life in the Congo), the term ‘Ubuntu’ which describes the central and east African philosophy of the inter-relationship and inter-dependence of all peoples. After briefly unpacking the term we set members a series of practical tasks of applying Ubuntu to real diversity dilemmas in a range of different subject settings across the curriculum for 7 – 14 year olds . .

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
