Respect. What does this word mean to you? Join a webchat on January 18, 2012 at 8:30am EST with U.S. Special Representative to Muslim Communities Farah Pandith, U.S. Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism Hannah Rosenthal and other State Department officials to share your thoughts about respect and how to teach it in the classroom.
Join us NOW on twitter using #Dignity4All and share your thoughts on respect, and how we can shape a curriculum to address respect, tolerance, and anti-racism through education.
UNESCO considers education vital to cultivating respect for all people, regardless of color, gender or descent, or national, ethnic or religious identity. To this end, “Teaching Respect for All,” a joint Brazil-UNESCO-USA project, is developing a curriculum framework for combating intolerance that countries can adapt to their respective contexts and needs. The project will provide practical tools that explain how to address the issues related to tolerance and anti-racism through education, building on lessons learned, and current good practices in this area.
