Welcome to Week 22 of Human Rights Meditations (and sorry for the delay). Each week we’re looking at an Article in the United Nation's Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Learn more about the series here. This series is way more about the time that you spend reflecting, and engaging in the discussion via comments below & twitter (hash tag #hrmlak).
This week we’re looking at Article 22 of the UDHR.
Article 22: Everyone, as a member of society, has the right to social security and is entitled to realization, through national effort and international co-operation and in accordance with the organization and resources of each State, of the economic, social and cultural rights indispensable for his dignity and the free development of his personality.
Read over the article above a few times and let it sink in (this is a long one, so you may want to break it up as you reflect). As you reflect, consider the following:
· What's the first picture that came to your mind?
· How did you respond to what you read?
· Reflect how you feel about yourself in comparison to others.
· Reflect on how you perceive others in your world.
· Reflect on your understanding of global issues.
Write the article down and stick it somewhere where you know you'll see it throughout the week. This will prompt you to keep the thinking going! Alternatively, write down something that has stood out to you throughout this meditation.
Now, get talking! Let's talk openly about our thoughts on each article, what we're learning about ourselves and some of the actions we're taking to live more in line with the Declaration. Don't forget that as well as chatting via the comments below, you can get talking via twitter by including this tag: #hrmlak
I'll go first:
- Paying for higher education: what's fair?
- How do you feel about means tested welfare?
- "the free development of his personality"... thinking about the principles of "life long learning"
