Say no to discrimination in education! – UNESCO #RightToEducation campaign

Say no to discrimination in education! – UNESCO #RightToEducation campaign

The year 2020 marks 60 years since the adoption by UNESCO’s General Conference of the UNESCO Convention against Discrimination in Education. This Convention highlights States’ obligations to ensure free and compulsory education, promotes equality of educational opportunity and prohibits any form of discrimination. Yet the #RightToEducation is still not a reality for millions.

UNESCO has launched a global reflection on the Right to Education, in the context of the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the 1960 Convention against Discrimination in Education.

Through dedicated platforms, UNESCO is gathering insights and reflections on what the right to education should further embrace in order to further respond to new and emerging challenges, and their implications for ensuring quality education and lifelong learning opportunities for all.

In this context you are invited to participate to this Survey and to share your thoughts on broadening the scope of the right to education to effectively respond to today’s challenges.

If you would like to submit a more comprehensive contribution, you may do this through the platform on the Global Conversation on the Right to Education.

Survey: How are we using participatory research to learn about children and young people’s perspectives during the COVID 19 pandemic?

In response to the challenges that COVID-19 has presented to participatory researchers around the world, researchers from the University of Melbourne and University College Dublin prepared a short survey, based on a focus group that was held during the ICPHR Virtual Annual Working Meeting 2020.  

The goal is to promote dialogue and shared learning on how researchers and practitioners are using participatory research to listen to children and young people’s perspectives during the COVID-19 pandemic, and what digital tools may help them facilitate their collaboration with child and young co-researchers.

Participating in this study requires you to answer a short online survey. The survey is available in English and Spanish (you can change the language using the button in the top right corner of the survey).
