We invite you to engage in an active dialogue with young people. Would you like to take part in discussions on one of the most important aspects of our lives, our dignity, and how the everyday choices we make, large and small, can have a positive influence on the world? Be a facilitator on GLOBAL DIGNITY DAY! You will lead a session with a school class for one hour, and your task will be to inspire and help the students to share their thoughts and stories about dignity. All facilitators will receive proper training before the event. GLOBAL DIGNITY DAY will be celebrated on 16 October 2013 at schools in more than 50 countries around the world.
