Welcome to the


Learning Circle

 Children's Rights


 Wiki LC 3













About this Learning Circle 


Welcome to the Learning Circle! In this worldwide classroom, we will discover together that children have rights that should apply everywhere in the world.

The right to a safe and loving home, where you can go to a good school, the right to live in a safe community where there is freedom to follow your dreams and much more... to be able to have a good and happy life.

In 1989, the United Nations set up The Convention on the Rights of the Child. During this convention, 195 countries made the agreement that children's rights should apply whenever and wherever, but this isn't as simple as it might seem. 
Luckily, more and more people find it important to fight for the rights of children. You can do that too, by raising awareness and showing that every child deserves a good future. 


In this Learning Circle, you can share your experiences, stories and opinions. We invite you all to learn and work together to make the world a better place.

Phase 4 - Completion & Evaluation

May 8 - June 2    2017 

EXTRA MESSAGE about THE LETTERS, Monday July 10:


Remember the individual assignment in peerScholar in the final phase?

It was an invitation to reflect on what you learned during the Circle process and it was also a writing contest.

The result is really amazing:  Wonderful letters, written by students of 3 English Circles, with such powerful personal messages and creative solutions! 


Please take some time to read them carefully. You’ll understand better why we really had trouble to choose just 3, so we selected 2 more winning letters.. ;-)


--->  In this pdf you'll find a selection of 16 remarkable letters to the jury of the GTP!

--->  In this pdf a summary of quotes and eyeopeners 


--->  And in this pdf you'll find the 5 winning letters!!




NEWSLETTER Tuesday June 6 (week 18):


Dear participants,


After a learning adventure of almost 4 months, the Learning Circles Children's Rights have ended for this school year.


In the final phase, wonderful letters have been written to the jury of the Global Teenager Project, with very personal messages and creative solutions.

Please add your evaluations asap, to finish the circles together.

The wikis stay open, so it’s possible to look closely at the contributions of other schools in the next weeks or months.


The next weeks we will:

  • collect all your letters to the jury of GTP, share the 3 winning letters with UNICEF and publish them in the wikis.

  • collect the questions to Mohamed Sidibay (challenge 2). You'll find his answers in this wiki too.

  • make a selection of all your work and invite all readers to look closely at all the beautiful contributions.


The next months: we are preparing the new Learning Circles that will start in February 2018.

  • we will start with an introduction and new assignments in Challenge 1.

  • in Challenge 2 you'll work in a different way, by designing and sharing your own questions for the other schools.

  • the answers can be added on your school page, but will also be shared in close connection with the other students; for example in several Skype meetings.

This adjustment is a result of your wish to encourage cooperation and communication with the other participants.

We'll keep you posted!


Keep up the good work!


Thank you for all your efforts to increase awareness about children’s rights!

On behalf of the LC team,


Bob Hofman,
