The workshop seeks to explore methods for using digital technologies to connect teachers and students engaged in learning about sustainability around the world.
The workshop will begin by sharing a method of connecting students to each other in learning activities, to reflect on how we similarly and differently experience the COVID-19 and climate challenges of our time. This is based on the experience of letter writing between students in sustainability programmes in Chile, Australia and Sweden.
After the introduction, a participatory approach will be used to invite participants deliberate on methods and tools that can connect Swedish and South Africa education programmes in a digital time.
The anticipated outcomes of the workshop include: 
  1. A network of academics willing to experiment with letter writing across the globe 
  1. A sharing of innovative and creative methods for the social sciences and humanities to connect people in a personal way in this digital age 
  1. Opportunities for greater collaboration in education for a sustainable society  through social transformation 
Researchers from Chile and Australia will join the Zoom conversation in the hope of inspiring more collaboration between South Africa and Sweden and beyond.
