An « International Day for Equal Opportunity »…
If the Different Leaders collective by Article 1 is the spearhead of this initiative, everyone can contribute to the International Equal Opportunity Day.
This website lists the initiatives sharing the original spirit of the JMEC (International Equal Opportunity Day) … but it also provides inspiration to take action !
To do what ?
To facilitate the academic and professional achievements of young people coming from a humble background; to challenge public and private decision makers on their responsibilities on this matter: to train; to commit….
… to do your part so that everyone can choose and not endure its career path.
By organizing workshops, debates, projections, public speaking competitions, campaigns… in short, through little or big actions, that will allow to move forward, to take action… or to simply reflect !
We chose the 5th of December of every year, in tribute to Nelson Mandela, departed this day. Thereby, we wish to encourage our generation to continue the constant fight for access to a decent education for all, which constitutes “the most powerful weapon to change the world”, according to him.
Everywhere ! Previous editions of the International Equal Opportunity Day have already emerged in England, Belgium, Côte d’Ivoire, Spain, the USA, France, Morocco and Senegal. To act together, is also to learn from our respective realtities, to help one another by sharing our experiences, our initiatives, our tools.
