This name stands for Conservation And Development In Sparsely Populated Areas and is the title given to a research project supported by the Worldwide Fund for Nature and the Environmental Centre at Jordanhill Campus. Storyline was the vehicle used to affect the attitudes of young pupils in primary schools in the Highlands and islands of Scotland. Storyline topics were designed using as their themes thought provoking topics such as ‘Fish Farming’, ‘Flow Country’ (a flooded area in the northeast of Scotland) and ‘Tourism’. These topic designs were published by WWF(UK) in 1994 entitled CADISPA Primary.
Involvement in CADISPA led to invitations to visit similar exercises and to speak at conferences in Reggio Callabria and Genoa, Italy and in Totana, near Murcia, in Spain. Around the same time, 1994, a paper was presented by the author on the Storyline approach to the National Teachers’ Conference in Malta organised by the Malta Union of Teachers. The papers from this conference are published under the title ‘A New Vision for Primary Schools’.
