Students at The Space of Wisdom school in Sfax, Tunisia worked together to investigate human rights issues, especially education. They created an awareness campaign called Better Education, Better Citizens, Better Future for All in which they discussed students’ dissatisfaction with the educational system in Sfax. They urged the educational ministry to change and update their educational system that is on pace with the 21st-century system where learning is more fun and enjoyable, which also allows students to manage their time efficiently between school and social life. They created a video in which a few students were interviewed about their school’s educational system in order to shed some light on this issue.
This student project was created as part of Youth Talk program, a youth virtual exchange program that connects students in North America and the Middle East and North Africa. It is run by Global Nomads Group, in partnership with Bridges of Understanding.
