May 15, 2019 Note from the President – Tales of WellBeing – May 2019
This issue of Tales of WellBeing has two items involving education – both humane and environmental. The “Tale” features the significant impact one individual has had in this arena. Marshall Rinquest is a key part of the success of the Greyton Transition Town project and an important educator – both environmental and humane – in the six villages that make up the Greyton/Genadendal community as well as more broadly across southern Africa (via the Reggae band of which he is a member). Our second item deals with the role of children’s literature in promoting humane and environmental education. Perhaps half of these stories feature animal characters, many of whom are as well-known as any human.
