Ms. Ashley Shunk, a teacher in Honduras, included hunger poems by Aaron R and others, and information about Poetry X Hunger in a recent webinar. After presenting to the European Union's Scientix group, a community of science educators in Europe, she wrote that the 100 attendees enjoyed her remarks, and that many were interested in using poetry as a way to engage students and the public in discussions about the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially SDG 2 that calls for the end of hunger worldwide -- Zero Hunger.
PoetryXHunger's Dr. Hiram Larew and Poet Aaron R participated in the conference for agricultural educators organized by the Pennsylvania State University GLAG20. Here is more information about the conference. They talked about the role of poetry as a teaching resource and poet Aaron R presented his poem which won the World Food Day Poetry competition in 2018.
