The DIALLS Student Manifesto is a declaration — from hundreds of young people — about how we all should behave towards each other and the planet we share.
In autumn 2020, twenty of the classes which had piloted the Cultural Literacy Learning Programme reflected on all that they had discussed in the past year, from tolerance, empathy, and inclusion to the challenges of climate change and democracy.
Each class wrote a set of “rules for living” statements: the guidelines which they think young people should follow in order to live by DIALLS values. Together, those statements form the DIALLS Student Manifesto, a powerful document of student voice and young people’s capacity to reflect on their role in the world. The Manifesto represents about 500 children in five countries.
Below, flip through the Manifesto itself, or keep scrolling to see the short films and artworks some classes created to accompany their rules for living statement.
