Benjamin Zephaniah joins forces with Welsh and African schools | 30-Jul-10

Poet Benjamin Zephaniah has written a new poem, 'We Go Global', for a DVD project linking schools from Wales and Africa.

Ysgol Llanllechid, near Bangor, and Mavisville Preparatory School, in Jamaica, will feature on the DVD to be distributed across the world. The two schools have produced work that shows how children's interests are similar the world over.

Zephaniah has stated: "We can't let big business hijack the word globalisation - partnerships like these are what globalisation is really about."
