Language Excursion: World Design Capital

Author: · October 18. 2013 · Language Excursions

This week our Language Excursion was about World Design Capital 2014. How exciting! A fireman, a barista and a towel factory employee decided to open the first coffee shop in a township in the Western Cape. It is called the Department of Coffee and we visited them! It has become a real attraction in Khayelitsha.

The next day we went to Woodstock. Apartheid’s group areas act did not split the area racially. Which means that today Woodstock is an incredibly diverse area both in terms of the people that live there and its economics.  We saw a lot of street art in Woodstock!

Our last Language Excursion of the week was to SEED. This is a not-for-profit ecological programme that teaches ecological literacy in schools. In cities, children are largely disconnected from the natural environment.  SEED focuses on school programmes and on setting up schools in under-resourced areas as centres of outdoor learning. Students learn about food production, eco-systems, and their own roles in the eco-systems.
