Children Rights Education
Theatre's power to open a space to reflect and to promote human rights, non- discrimination and peaceful conflict resolution.
Conflicts and violence have accompanied our societies at all times in our history, it is a reality that we are living every day and we have as negative result, that we did not learn from it despite the many experiences we have lived. The European continent is not an exception, of course. Citizens from the European continent have been living for a long time in horrible wars, conflicts and human catastrophes, and in fact these kind of matters are growing every day in the societies of our continent. The majority of big changes are inspired by small actions. In a world in which we live today so full of violence, it is important that from the beginning of life, children's education is based on respect for freedom, equality and dignity, for themselves and others.
The best outcome of our project would be: raise awareness in children and open-minded young people who will, in the future, promote tolerance and respect for all human beings in their communities and environments. The big idea is that these young children can have the tools to build networks between each other.
The project would be realised in Berlin from 1 October 2015 till 31 January 2016. The idea is to run the activity at Berlin's State Library Westhafen (Kinder- und Jugendbuchabteilung, Westhafenstraße 1, 13353 Berlin (Tiergarten)) or a similar place. This kind of activity will be applied under the different principles of active participation and non-formal education: creativity, active participation, self-directed learning, equal partnership, initiative. Participants will have the opportunity to make personal contributions, give feedback to the stories, build and share personal opinions at the forum. The stories that we are going to use are the stories published at https://saluanassabay.wordpress.com/mis-libros/.
