„Change the world of tomorrow by discussing the world of today”
Rise of extreme nationalism
Extreme Nationalism is seen as a threat to humanity, and many people are being misinformed regarding this topic. A word that may come to one’s mind is dictatorship, but it is much more than this.
Education for Diversity
Education for diversity is transformative education that includes the concept of social justice, as well as multiple perspectives of various social groups. Much discussion about diversity focuses on the following forms of marginalisation: race, gender, religion and sexual orientation.
Right to education
About 263 million children, adolescents and youth worldwide (or one in every five) are out of school. In many developing countries there are great challenges when it comes to the right to education due to: a lack of resources, lack of capacity, persisting inequality, and a lack of political will.
