Workshop description

How do we design just and sustainable futures together? Why is it important to center Africa in our thinking about the future and what can we learn from the African experience toward this goal? This year’s ASA Teachers’ Workshop brings the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) under a critical lens. We see the struggle for a more just world - from the fostering of more equitable North-South relations, the struggle for gender equity, to the dismantling of global white supremacy  - as intricately connected with struggles for the well-being of our whole planet. We know that students and educators are trying to work out their role as agents of change for a more equitable and sustainable world. We also note that demographic changes mean Africa will be central to this future.

In response, this year's workshop sessions explore diverse African visions and work toward a better future. You'll learn why your students need a better understanding of African countries as we move further into the 21st century, then you'll have a chance to explore in more depth. Workshops are organized by subject: history and social studies, literature and language arts, visual arts and music, science and technology. No matter what subject or age-group you teach, the ASA Teachers' Workshop will provide you with ways to incorporate African visions for a just future into your teaching.
