Last Saturday marked the first awards of the Swazi writing competition run by our Project. The responses were marvellous. I was particularly impressed by the creativity of the poetry. I was pleased that learners who wrote poems, wrote from the heart; this is what I believe ecological thought is all about. It is not environmental learning alone. The narrative essays tended to stick to environmental facts, What we want is to hear is about YOUR ideas and possible approaches to finding solutions to the global eco-challenges. However, this is not criticism, but information about how to respond in future with respect to ecological challenges, and in our case, our writing challenges!
You will be hearing a lot more from eSwatini in future months. Our intention is to focus on creating wonderful interactive learning activities with you for the rest of the year!
