Participar con otras personas en la construcción de conocimientos relacionados con la promoción de la biodiversidad subacuática.Reconocer los valores y creencias que subyacen detrás de formas (no)sostenibles de gestionar la biodiversidad subacuática. Identificar valores propios y ajenos y reflejar cómo estos pueden combinarse para reducir el impacto de las actividades humanas en los océanos.
Photo-language and creative writing method: Learners imagine and then learn about different stakeholder perspectives on marine biodiversity.
- A set of pictures representing various aspects of life below water (including human and non-human ones such as fish) are spread on a table. Each learner picks one picture that touches him/her.
- Learners explain why they have chosen their picture, and what link they can make with life under water.
- Each learner then writes a very short story as if he/she was the aspect represented on the picture attempting to make its perspective regarding life under water explicit (eg. “As a fish, I particularly appreciate in …/As a commercial fisherman I…”).
- Each learner adds one sentence regarding what a sustainability issue (e.g. climate change) could mean for them (eg. “As a coral reef I fear not being able to adapt to rising water temperatures”)
- The different stories are read aloud in front of the whole group, and different sets of underlying values are made explicit. A discussion is held on which aspects are in favour or not of sustainable management of the common good “life below water”.
- The discussion can then be related to texts presenting “real” perspectives on the issue of various stakeholders/scientific knowledge on life below water, including all these aspects.
