One World Week 2017 will focus on Peace, Justice, the Sustainable Development Goals and YOUth. A new educational resource will be uploaded shortly.
The resource seeks to put the plight of refugees and the drivers of migration into a wider political context with the SDGs as a tool providing insight and authority. The activities challenge young people to be empathetic to the stark reality and perilous journeys facing refugees and migrants, including giving some insight into what it might be like to have to live that reality and make the tough choices facing their fellow human beings every day.

2014 was the 25th year of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). Check out a resource on UNCRC for youth workers, youth leaders, youth organisations, youth work students, those who work with young people and for young people themselves. Setting Our Sights on Rights contains games, activities, facts, fun, and links to more information. It specifically looks at Article 12 of the UNCRC which states that: children and young people have the right to say what they think should happen when adults are making decisions that affect them, and to have their opinions taken into account.
