African Mythology And The Environment
Since ancient times, the African oral storytelling tradition has been rooted in the natural world and woven from the human experience.
In this project, children, caregivers and parents will discover chosen African mythologies with diverse narratives and ancient wisdom, offering unique and varied perspectives that can simplify and enrich the climate conversation and foster a deeper appreciation for the natural world.
From these stories of intersectionality, we learn the importance of an intricate balance between people and the world.
Through these tales, children, parents, and caregivers will also learn about other ecosystems, the people who live in these areas, how our actions impact their daily lives and how we can act as pillars for the future.
There is something worth cherishing when two generations collaborate at different stages of life.
Intergenerational Learning and cognitive development for children are particularly powerful when grounded in the reality of meaningful activities and relationships with the older generation.
On Yuniya, we run a project called Connections, setting the stage for intergenerational climate approaches through the power of storytelling.
