OutRight is Unicef UK’s annual youth campaign that empowers children and young people to speak out about children’s rights on World Children’s Day – 20 November – the anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. It’s a campaign by children, for children, that helps children and young people to promote and protect children’s rights in the UK and around the world.
Beatlie is one of more than 5,000 Unicef UK Rights Respecting Schools across the UK that embed children’s rights in their ethos and culture.
We hope that through the campaign not only the children got to experience how climate change is making an impact on our planet and they have had the freedom to express their feelings and understanding of what they have participated in but you have also:
Learnt about climate change and its impacts
Learnt how climate change and its impacts affect children’s rights
Use your voices to call on decision-makers to take actions on climate change that prioritise children’s rights.
Please have a look at our fantastic children having fun and learning over the last 3 weeks culminating with World Children’s Day.
Thank you all for your participation over the last 3 weeks. I hope you all found it informative and perhaps make you think about what you can do no matter how small to make the World a better place for generations to come!
This year OutRight is focused on the important topic of climate change and what a changing climate means for children’s rights.
Climate science is a very big topic, so the purpose of this activity is to make sure we all have a common understanding of some of the most important facts and terms.
Have a Go!
Answers will be published at the end of this week.
As part of our commitment to the Outright Campaign and speaking out for the rights of our children we have been using the Story Massage Programme which combines the benefits of positive touch with the creativity of storytelling.
In this story we have addressed the issue of Climate Change and how it is affecting our planet which is having adverse effects on our children’s rights across the world.
As a Rights Respecting School, Beatlie strive to support each other and those in need. Of course with so many changes in our lives at the moment it can make it difficult to participate in activities where we can come together – which we have all grown to love.
So my solution is to have fun at home with the family and support Soccer Aid for Unicef – the world’s biggest celebrity football match, raising money to give kids the best start in life.
