As the world becomes more and more interconnected, there are increased opportunities for us to interact with one another both in person, and via virtual settings. We see almost daily instances where those interactions can be uplifting and positive, but far too often we hear of instances of ugliness in the world. So what can be done? How we all take the steps to coexist in peace and harmony with one another? One organization has made it their mission to help answer this question by teaching about dignity. On October 18th thousands of teachers, facilitators, students and participants from around the world celebrated Global Dignity Day, a day where the concept of dignity becomes tangible and understandable for all who participate.

Today, we are thrilled to share that Global Dignity has released over 25 learning experiences which go beyond that one day, and can be used throughout the entire year. Each experience has been designed to help participants grasp what dignity means, and how they can show dignity, in their everyday lives. The learning experiences are perfect for participants of all ages and are categorized by ages 5-9 and 10+. You will also find that the experiences vary in length depending upon the amount of time you have available.
Global Dignity has made it incredibly simple to join their movement to transform the world into one where “compassion, understanding and love triumph over intolerance, injustice and inequality.” To get started, visit their website, watch the videos and read the materials, and then decide how you will take action with your students. It’s that easy. By choosing to get involved, you are joining thousands of individuals, from all over the world, to ensure that human dignity is elevated throughout the globe. To connect with these individuals join the conversation on social media using the hashtag #globaldignity.
