The Details

Dignity Day is an international event which contributes to the Global Dignity mission – to promote the fundamental right of every human to lead a dignified life.Through Dignity Day we aim at challenging young people to see the importance of dignity for their development and inspire them to practice the principles of dignity in all aspects of their lives.

The structure of the event involves approx. 70-100 students for three hours, who firstly interact in one same large space, and also separately, in groups of 4-6 students. They work together and they are guided by our volunteers in this process, with tools and specific exercises work. Then all fellow students present their findings and conclusions from the work groups about what dignity means to them and their own understanding on the topic.

During the event, students are encouraged to identify relevant situations from their own experiences, friends or even fictional characters, situations illustrating what dignity means to them. They also write a letter to their future self. We encourage them to write down ways in which they aim to influence in a positive manner their own dignity and the dignity of others. After a year, we return their letters in an event that is part of the Today. Now. program.
