Environment is critical to the teaching and learning of human rights. Children and adults learn most effectively if the environment is respectful of the principles being taught. Examples of interventions include: approaches and activities to build a healthy learning environment which is child friendly and inclusive for all, irrespective of caste, class, gender, race, ethnicity and disability; using human rights related words to name corridors and buildings; inviting the outside community to join in activities like repairs and refurbishment of school buildings; designating an area within the school to human rights, such as a garden or discussion room.

Take your learning forward, ensuring that the spirit of the RTE Act is reflected in teaching practices and present in the classroom space!
