Human Rigths & Obligations
Would it be necessary to create the “Human Obligations” in order to achieve the MDGs?
Our project seeks to increase the previously stated Human Right. Because we live in a world where our decisions and actions affect others on a global scale, we must acknowledge and accept the notion of global citizenship. Young people are the inheritors of global change and for that reason the values and attitudes instilled in their education now will have an effect on the way global matters are addressed in the future. Therefore, 21st Century citizenship need a global education in order to see the future as their own evolution as a specie, without any type of ethnocentrism.
Will it be possible to create global citizens if the governments which signed the MDG in theoretical framework do not put any change into practice?
We have to remember that the world in which we are living is not a gift from our parents it is a borrow from our children. What will they think if we do not do all we have in our hands to improve the world? Thinking in sustainable development future is also thinking about our children and for that reason we want to refresh the article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948 by the United Nations, when education was declared as a Human Right:
“1) Everyone has the right of education. Education shall be free, at least in the elementary and fundamental stages. Elementary education shall be compulsory. Technical and professional education shall be made generally available and higher education shall be equally accessible to all on the basis of merit.
2) Education shall be directed to the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. It shall promote understanding, tolerance and friendship among all nations, racial or religious groups, and shall further the activities of the United Nations for the maintenance of peace.
3) Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children.”
Create “Human Obligations” means to formulate news ways (as International Volunteer Service) for rich countries citizens to help most needy people!
