River of Words in Southeast Asia!

Posted by on February 24, 2015

Traidhos Three-Generation Barge ProgramIMG_0961 in collaboration with EarthMatters hosted the first Asian teacher workshop for River of Words in January!

Participating teachers travelled from Oman, India, Vietnam and from around Thailand. The workshop provided a platform for participants to learn about watersheds and the different issues and tensions that exist within any watershed whilst exploring the Chao Phraya River.

River of Words
 originated in America and holds an annual competition with an international category to encourage young people to respond to an experience outside the classroom and learn about their watershed through art or poetry.

So often issues to do with watersheds are confined to the science class, yet
the answer to many of the problems facing water management and land use may well be found through more creative thinking, as is offered by River of Words.

Traidhos Barge Program and EarthMatters plan to promote River of Words and celebrate the creative achievements of young people in Asia by hosting a regional competition for art and poetry.
