Global Dignity Day Canada

Just like yesterday, I was trying to get some work done and had half an eye on the Twitter stream.  This time, my friend Peter Skillen shared this link for the Canadian Global Dignity Day website.

And, I’ve got to say, Peter encapsulates the importance of the day right in his Twitter message.

I recognize that things are starting to wrap up for this school year but take a look for planning for the next.

At the site, see a complete description of the event, download the facilitator’s guide, and register to participate.

Not from Canada?  Check the international Global Dignity Day site here.  The claim is that 50 countries will take part worldwide.

The Mission Statement says it all.

The Mission of Global Dignity is to implement the universal right of every human being to lead a dignified life. We all have the ability to increase the dignity of others and thus we increase our own dignity. The more dignity we have, the brighter our world will be.

Thanks, Peter, for sharing this.

Please consider registering and passing the information along.

  1. A very timely post. As our school year draws to a close I’m constantly reminded that too much of the external talk is about (a) school being seen as solely preparation for the world of work and (b) too much focus on how we ‘stack up’ compared to other nations.
    …and too little talk about how education is also about preparing our young people to lead meaningful and productive lives both at the personal and societal level. Global Dignity is a nice way to get back to ground level :>)
