Review of unit 3

You need about an hour.

What have we done?

Exclamation markBefore you leave this unit, look back over what you have done using activity sheet 26. First, on your own, score from 1–5 how much you feel you have learnt about each of the unit’s three aims (1 is a little and 5 is a lot). Mark in the box on the right anything more you want to do to take forward your learning. Now come together as a group to consider what you have learnt as a group. How are you doing together? Write in the box at the bottom what additional actions you may want to take as a group to strengthen your understanding of any particular part of the unit. You will have now reflected on your own personal learning and how the group is doing as a whole and what you agree needs to happen next.

A right review

Rights to participation – Articles 12–17

CharterAct by Right is rooted in the Convention on the Rights of the Child. By developing your own Act by Right Charter, the group should increase its understanding of your rights to participate in the issues affecting you and strengthen your arguments to be taken seriously and get things changed. Reflect on your learning in this unit and look particularly at the Articles indicated above which are in your copy of the Convention in the Resource Section. Discuss the questions below and agree at least two Articles to add to your Act by Right Charter (blank copy downloadable from here) and complete the three columns: the number of the Article, ‘The Article says’ and three action points in the ‘What we are going to do’ column.

  • Do children and young people usually have a chance to speak out on issues that concern you?
  • In what areas of your lives are you most likely to be listened to and have an influence on decisions affecting you?
  • In what areas of your lives are you least likely to be listened to and to have an influence on decisions that affect you? How can you challenge this?

Before you move on

Reflecting on what you’ve learnt and the skills you’ve gained give yourself a personal challenge to complete during the week.

How about:

  • Contact a local group, national group, and a global group that can inform and support your work on climate change.
  • Research different companies who use sustainable products who may be able to help you.
  • Change something small in your daily routine to help fight climate change.
