Inspired by the UN’s “Human Rights of the Child”, students in the Pembina Trails School Division in Winnipeg each individually contributed to the building of a giant mosaic at the Winnipeg Blue Bombers field this week.

As a part of a project of human rights education, each student could pick one of the human rights of children as defined by the UN. These rights include:

  • The right to education
  • The right to food, clothing and a place to live
  • To right to freedom from war
  • The right to knowledge
  • The right to protection from harm

Students could choose any of these right outlined by the UN (which number 54 in total) and illustrate it on a tile. Over 2 days, these tiles were assembled by 13,000 students and 2,000 educational staff members into the shape of the international symbol for human rights.

The end product featured 15,000 tiles in all. Check it out here.
