“The UNESCO in 2005 stated that cultural diversity is of utmost importance for ‘the full realization human rights and fundamental freedoms proclaimed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other universally recognized instruments.”
Do you know why diversity is so important for peace?
Every year CISV focuses on one of its four content areas for peace education, giving us a chance look closer into all the dimensions each of these contents can offer. In 2017, we covered Human Rights, finding out that Human Rights is really everywhere! This year, we are jumping to Diversity, which opens a world of possibilities to discover! Are you ready?
Meet the team that will be working together through 2018 to come up with interesting content and materials to help CISVers around the world to engage in Diversity Education! We aim to spread the word on Diversity Education and to provide tools and inspiration for trainers, leaders, staffs, participants, Junior Branch, board members, and anyone else eager to learn with us! If you have any suggestions for the team, please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org
