Our aim is to give young people a profound grounding in human rights, equality, empathy and ethics thereby building the foundation for individual and societal progress. We believe that education must do more than produce individuals who can read, write and count. It must produce responsible caring and respectful global citizens who can rise to the challenges of the 21st Century. By adding social and emotional learning (SEL) as the foundation for Human Rights to numeracy and literacy skills, our vision is to holistically educate the world’s children, bringing sustainable human development, peaceful and free communities and social, emotional and economic returns for all nations.
Our project goal is to secure national commitment to adopt and implement as compulsory and from the earliest years, the comprehensive SEL curriculum that we have written (with input from visionary experts in SEL) to empower and transform the mind sets in children and young people around the world. In doing so, we hope to generate a multiplier effect that will also empower teachers, parents and families. More broadly, achieving these goals would make communities safer, healthier, stronger and more economically productive.
