WHAT IS IT LIKE TO HAVE TO FLEE?

Peace and safety are not automatic for everybody. Disasters and conflicts affect the lives of many millions of people around the world. What do your pupils think of this?

At present, an estimate of 68,5 million people around the world have fled their homes. That means that 31 people are newly displaced every minute of the day. Our learning programmes enhance understanding of humanitarian themes related to refugees, war and relief aid. What are the stories of the people behind the statistics. Do your pupils understand these figures? Can they gain empathy for people forced to flee from war and conflict?

Humanity House contributes to the development of skills related to the theme of citizenship. We encourage pupils to engage in dialogue and determine their own point of view about social, global and international developments. Through our interactive learning programmes, your pupils discover what peace, safety and world citizenship mean to them.

WORLD CITIZENSHIP

Many cultures, religions, political persuasions and ideologies coexist within society. For young people at the centre of this society, it is important to know what's happening and to form an opinion. Humanity House brings current events closer to home, and lets pupils view the world with an open mind.

SimSummit

How do we achieve world peace?

In 2018 The Netherlands have a temporary seat in the Security Council, the United Nations organ that is given the task of securing worldwide peace. But what type of actions can this institution sanction and how are the different countries that make up the council able to come together to form a unified decision? In SimSummit students simulate a Security Council meeting and reflect on the diplomatic considerations that come into play on this international podium.
