In weeks 9 to 13, DIB offers ten free guest teacher visits to the elementary school's oldest classes with film screening and teaching presentations to create change projects based on the UN World Goal.
The movie The voices of the displaced tells the story of Johary, a young man from the Philippines who, along with thousands of others, has been driven from his home in the city of Marawi by an armed conflict between IS-related militias and Philippine government forces. The fierce war has stolen Johary's childhood home and dreams of the future, but it has also given him something new - an identity as an activist and a voice that he has to use.
Based on this story, DIB will, with the teaching project #standingupfortheworld , like to inspire Danish students to find and use their voices and help bring change in their near environment. We come out and show the movie, talk about its background, about the UN World Goals, and how they can provide a framework for participating in developing a more just and sustainable world - locally and globally well as.
