Jane Freeland, who convenes NSC’s Education Working Group, talked to Claire Plumb about how an interactive project led by the Leicester Masaya Link Group (LMLG) is helping British children learn about global citizenship. Claire recently led a Leicester City Council delegation to Masaya.
As part of our education campaign, the Nicaragua Solidarity Campaign (NSC) and town twinning groups have been discussing how to make more strategic use of the experience of years of solidarity with municipalities and communities in Nicaragua. The insights of this work into Nicaraguan daily life illuminate more vividly than any abstract analysis how Nicaragua’s problems derive from global systems involving us all. LMLG’s Food for Thought programme is an innovative example of how solidarity links can be built which draw on the experiences of both communities and are truly reciprocal.
