Morality Plays

How to transmit knowledge

In June, 2010, we recorded two morality plays presented by the Villagers in Shapi Village, Mansa, Zambia. These plays centered on Earth Charter Principles as they applied to daily life in the rural setting. We wish to thank Mr.Dalton Kaole Sonkotwe for organizing and narrating the plays, and Chief Bernard Shapi for his generous support of our efforts.

The Morality Play #1 focuses on Food Security as part of Social and Economic Justice, Principle 3

Morality Play #2 focuses on Principle 4 of the Earth Charter, Democracy, Nonviolence, and Peace, as it applied to domestic violence and the democratic organization of the family.
