Designed by and for high school teachers, this educational toolkit was developed to inform and empower youth to take action toward alleviating human suffering. Using Canadian examples, this toolkit has 6 modules that touch on issues of International Humanitarian Law such as war crimes, refugees, neglected crises, gender inequality, humanitarian principles, mechanisms for justice and youth engagement.
This interactive online resource is designed for students between the ages of 13-18 and supports understanding of International Humanitarian Law and humanitarian issues. Teachers can use this resource in collaboration with the lesson plans available in the teaching resources links or they can choose to use it as a stand-alone activity to trigger critical thinking and classroom discussion on issues related to armed conflict.
For teachers and students at the elementary or secondary level, this page provides educational materials about the law, democracy and civic participation as well as resources about school safety, bullying, and internet safety.
