“Project: Global Inform” (PGI) is a peace education project where students use media to spread awareness about human rights violations. Project Inform came out of the idea that educators too
often “teach” students about genocide and human rights violations, but never “do” anything about it. This project’s main objective is to create awareness about current human rights violations. Which human rights violations, and what specific actions should be taken are both the focus and questions of the student’s research.
PGI can be implemented in a two, four, or six week unit depending on the amount of time a class has to spend on it. Infusing PGI with a current unit/curriculum on genocide and/or human rights violations provides for the best possible experience. PGI has been developed through research of best practices and case studies, and uses experiential learning as the backdrop for successful learning goals and outcomes.
