PACE in the UK
Thanks once again to funding from the Vodafone Group Foundation, the PACE project is now working with teachers in the UK to create a new global dimension teaching resource. The resource will feature the people and projects in the PACE films as case studies to initiate pupil-led investigations of environmental issues. For example, a farm biogas plant in Tanzania sparks off a comparison of energy use and greenhouse gas emissions by British and Tanzanian households; Learning about local solutions to elephants raiding crops in Kenya and Zambia leads to a discussion about the potential reintroduction of large mammals, such as wolves, to Scotland and the values which underpin the search for peaceful solutions to human-wildlife conflict. Each section concludes by asking whether we can use the practical projects seen in the films as inspiration for positive environmental action in the UK. If you are a teacher of KS2 or 3 in the UK and are interested in getting involved, please contact us on email@example.com or telephone 01865 794343.
