Millennium Fellowship Project: Dialogue, Comic & Action!
Through this project, we aimed to work on the need to promote sustainable development and global citizenship through education (SDG 4.5) and elimination of all discrimination in education (SDG 4.7). We intend to develop a comic book to raise awareness about issues and concepts like migration, xenophobia, refugees’ rights and nonviolent communication. Once the comic book is developed, we would conduct sessions with school students between the age group of 13 to 18 years in which we would start a dialogue with them on the mentioned topics. Our broader objective through this project is to make young children respect human life by recognising the importance of human rights so that they are empowered to become active global citizens.
