The session

In this session, we are going to be learning about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. These fundamental rights are a vital but overlooked part of society and knowing more about them can help us to engage in the important dialogue needed to ignite social change. We will learn about why they were created, what they are and how we can use them to empower us during our social action work and day to day life.

This session is designed to build upon the ideas discussed in Louis Howell's Social Action Hackathon, as well as the follow-up social action and activism sessions. Whether you are new to our online youth series or you have been with us from the start, this will be a valuable session on how we can use rights and words to support us in our social action initiatives!

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

About the speaker

Sarah Boyle - Educator and champion of the Ripples of Host project. 

Sarah Boyle has experience in both pastoral and teaching roles within a range of educational settings. She worked within an SEN department in a vocational college before joining a sixth form college as a Personal Progress Tutor.

During this role, Sarah worked hard to equip young people with academic and personal skills with a focus on personal development, social responsibility and social awareness. She also has extensive knowledge of revision strategies, progression routes and career options, as well as the knowledge and experience to support young people with their mental health and personal difficulties. 

For the last 4 years, she's been a high school English teacher in Rochdale and has recently become the school’s Pupil Leadership Co-ordinator. Sarah is keen to not only help young people succeed academically but also on a personal level.

In her role as Pupil Leadership Co-ordinator, she seeks opportunities to help young people achieve success outside of their studies and ready them for being socially responsible, prepared and developed individuals.

She's looking forward to using all this experience during the online sessions and will be offering guidance on an educational front.
