Chris Newton: Restoring Lost, Dying Languages to Communities Around the World
Chris: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! Through Speakden, we are bringing lost and dying languages back to communities around the world.
Lisa: It’s wonderful to connect, Spiffy, and to share what we do at World Education Connection (WEC). Even though you are an interplanetary journalist from a different planet, I believe all of us share the desire to feel connected and accepted as our true selves. This can be very hard because we fear being judged or not fitting in when we expose who we truly are—inside and out. Conversely, we often make quick judgments about people before we know anything about them. WEC encourages children to lean in and explore areas where they can find connection with themselves, their local peers, and global teammates.
