Marist Celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child

19/11/2019: General House

As part of the celebration to mark the 30th Anniversary of the signing of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Secretariat for Education and Evangelization of the Institute launches the Project "Stand Up, Speak Up & Act".

This Project wishes to mobilize groups of children and young people from Marist Provinces and Districts throughout the coming year, so that they contribute to the elaboration of a document that defines criteria and suggests lines of action to promote their been listened to by the Institute (at the different levels), as well as to encourage their participation and empowerment.

The Project "Stand Up, Speak Up & Act" emanates from the call of the XXII General Chapter of the Institute to "develop initiatives for the participation and empowerment of children and young people in all the realities of mission"where we are.

Each Administrative Unit of the Institute has a liaison person (link), who will be in charge of monitoring this process of participation and of sending the contributions made by the children and young people of the different countries.

Given the scope of importance that the Secretariat gives to this document, more people will be asked to listen to the voices and reflections of groups of educators on the right to participation of children and young people in the spaces of Marist action.

In the last few months, different international groups of children, young people and educators have been working intensely on the preparation of the materials for the Project. The motivational videos were made by young people from the Province of Central Mexico based on contributions from children and young people from 24 countries with Marist presence. The official poster "Stand Up, Speak Up & Act" was prepared by young people from the Marist Province of Mediterranea. The documents are the fruit of a collective contribution of educators from Brazil, Chile, Nigeria, Mexico, Spain, Colombia and the Philippines.

We invite you to be part of this Project and renew the Institute's commitment to become expert defenders of the Rights of the Child.
