Celebrate Global Dignity Day - Activity Instructions

Schools celebrate lots of special events through the year. Write a letter to your school principal convincing them that your school should recognise Global Dignity Day.

Global Dignity Day is an inspirational event that engages people from around the world in both understanding and celebrating dignity. It harnesses the power of uplifting speakers, music, storytelling, film, assemblies and/or service projects to involve entire schools and organisations in celebrating dignity. By the end of the day, people feel empowered, more aware of their own unique value and recognise these same qualities in others. Everyone who celebrates Global Dignity Day joins local and global communities of people committed to living lives of dignity and treating others with dignity.

Global Dignity Day is celebrated on the third Wednesday of every October, by over 500,000 people in 70+ countries.
