A "sign for human rights" initiative

Students are invited to produce a “message” on the issue dealt with by this year meeting (women’s rights). Such message should be visual and clear (for example: t-shirts, choreographies, posters), and should be brought to Mandela Forum in Florence on the 10th December. Teachers are invited to help their students with this initiative. Messages will be shown and promoted during the day of the Meeting.
