1. LOOKING FOR TOOLS AND LESSONS PLANS FOR YOUTH AND THE UN CONVENTION ON THE RIGHTS OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES
Dear List Members, With our organization we are currently working on a 3-year project for raising awareness among European youth (Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Czech Republic) about the rights of people with disabilities – we primarily focus on the necessity of inclusion of people with disabilities in mainstream development in developing countries (since we are a development NGO).
We’re now thinking of different ways to address youth and were wondering if you have any tips for tools / resources / lesson plans regarding youth and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Many thanks in advance. 
With kind regards, Lieke Scheewe, Programme Coordinator, Foundation Dark & Light, member of LIGHT FOR THE WORLD:

  • For inclusion of persons with disabilities;
  • For eradication of avoidable blindness.

3. LOOKING FOR RESEARCH OR RESOURCES ABOUT TEACHING HRE TO PRE-SERVICE TEACHERS
Good day, I am reaching out to ask if anyone has research or resources about teaching HRE to preservice teachers in a School of Education at a college/university.  I am using this for a dissertation-my focus being that using an HRE framework will advance culturally empowering teaching practices by new teachers for an increasingly diverse student population.
Thank you, Julie Schiller, University of San Francisco, Doctoral Candidate, E-mail.
