Join our Annual General Meeting on March 6, 2018 at 6:30 PM at Burnaby Central Secondary

After the business portion of the meeting, we will have a viewing of the documentary film, Voices of Children with a discussion facilitated by John Nimmo.

View the short documentary film, Voices of Children, and engage in a facilitated conversation with one of the film’s creators, John Nimmo*.

An international group of World Forum Foundation educators, social scientists, filmmakers, and advocates embarked on a journey to create this documentary. The film expands on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child by advocating for a more inclusive view of children’s rights from the perspective of the children themselves.

This project has become much more than the creation of a powerful documentary. As teams of international educators travel to carefully chosen locations in the world, working together and working with various groups of teachers, a profound understanding of how to listen to and honour children’s thoughts and ideas is emerging. Schools that participate are changed. Educators who are part of the planning and logistics teams are changed. A powerful tool is being created that will effectively demonstrate children’s understanding of what connects us all as human beings.

*John Nimmo is also a contributor to the first edition of The Hundred Languages of Children.
