"Rivers of the World provides a fantastic opportunity for schools to work together on a joint activity. In Hull and Freetown art teachers formed links within their own cities as well as across the water. The impact on the schools and teachers in both cities cannot be underestimated. Reciprocal visits have helped to embed the partnerships throughout the schools and have enabled teachers and pupils to learn about culture and diversity, increasing knowledge and ideas which will help tackle local and global issues for a sustainable future.”
