On our return to Tenkodogo from a visit to a Bagre Dam, we had the honor of having a conversation with an elder in his court, a small group of straw roof huts surrounded by a hand-shaped clay wall. His wives, children, and son’s wife, along with their children, live in this court together as a large family. Hear his perspective on what’s important as he “lives as one with the land” by viewing the video after the jump!

Remember when you were told, “Be careful what you wish for, it may actually happen!” Well, that is exactly what has happened to us. The University of Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment has generously supported a longtime dream of ours, so we are packing our gear and kicking off the first expedition of our dream project, Earthducation — Expedition 1: Burkina Faso. After a successful pilot trip last winter (Expedition 0), the official launch of the Earthducation project is actually happening! Earthducation is one of the premiere projects offered by the new Learning Technologies Media Lab (LTML) at the University of Minnesota. We are so excited to share this project with you!
