This year, from February to May 2016 we are going to work in the Learning Circles on Children's Rights, offered by the Global Teenager Project in collaboration with iEARN and ICT&E. Students will be challenged to wonder, question, explore and share.
With your stories and contributions you will connect with students at school and abroad. Collaborative learning will make you aware of children’s rights and sharing will give you a voice.
All the phases of the Children's Rights Project are clearly set in the Circle Timeline.
Below you can see the list of the participants enrolled in this Global Project.
