Youth Rights Day

Youth Rights Day

Youth Rights Day is created to raise awareness of youth rights and to unite people behind youth-led efforts to have youth included as full democratic citizens in decisions that affect them.

We are fully aligned with this wonderful project. Join us.

Democracy has to be born anew every generation, and education is its midwife
John Dewey

Spring Academy fully realizes Τhe UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
The Convention defines “children” as people under the age of 18.
Fully implementing the Convention brings you up against articles as well as translations of the Convention that are corruptions of the rights of the child. The full implementation of the Convention requires the revision of the Convention itself. This review is 40 years late.

If there is to be any kind of social change, there must be a different kind of education so that children are not brought up to conform.
