Vol 2 - EXPANSION OF SUGAR CANE

Through the global spread of a highly successful agricultural product ‐ which took place over 8000 years, but was accelerated by the European conquest of the Americas – both the map and related activity aim at stimulating attention to the links between economic activities, global human events and widening inequalities, and more generally at developing the ability to grasp the interconnections between times, spaces, and events.

Vol 1 - MATRIARCHAL SOCIETIES

Through the analysis of past and present matriarchal societies, the educational activity shows how gender inequalities are constant in the history of the world and encourages the development of the capacity to decentralise, i.e. to consider different points of view and ways of living other than the ones we're used to.

Vol 1 - THE ROMANS AND THE CHINESE

Usually, when studying the history of the period around the first century of the Common Era, in European Schools we focus on the events of the Roman Empire. Looking at what was happening simultaneously outside our continent can reserve some surprises that help develop the ability to decentralize, i.e. not to consider oneself at the centre of the world, and to dialogue with points of view other than one's own.

Vol 1 - THE BIRTH OF CAPITALIST ECONOMY

By presenting the flow of goods and slave labour in the centuries following the conquest of the Americas, the maps aim to underline a fundamental turning point in global history: the transition from a world system of economic exchange that did not produce strong inequalities to one based on unequal trade, in which some European states became dominant. The understanding of this shift helps develop the capacity to grasp discontinuity in history and in human action in general.

Vol 1 - BIRTH OF AGRICULTURE, FIRST EMPIRES, SCIENCES...

Linking the birth of agriculture, the birth of the first empires and the spread of mathematics, this short series of maps spans a period ranging from 12000 to 500 years ago, promoting awareness of the relationship between economic, political and cultural aspects, and helping to develop a global citizenship competence: the ability to grasp correlations.

Vol 1 - MIGRATION

The educational activity analyzes the global migration waves of Homo sapiens populations (occurred between 70,000 and 8,000 years ago) and then promotes a survey on migration in students’ families. Through these two different modes of analysis the activity favours the awareness of displacement as a normal phenomenon in human history.
