I am writing to you on behalf of Education for Justice (E4J), an initiative launched by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) as a key component of the Global Programme for the Implementation of the Doha Declaration. E4J aims at building a culture of lawfulness among children and youth by developing age-appropriate educational materials that promote peace, justice and equality and integrating them into curricula across all education levels.
At the primary level, E4J focuses on promoting and teaching values such as acceptance, fairness, integrity, respect, civic responsibility. At the secondary and tertiary levels, E4J’s emphasis is on producing high-quality educational materials, lesson plans and learning modules in the UNODC mandated areas.
Furthermore, E4J seeks to gather pre-existing relevant and age-appropriate educational materials on these key issues and make them available through an online library of resources on the E4J website to a broad constituency of interested stakeholders such as educators, academics, policy-makers, parents and students. The purpose of the online library is strictly non-commercial. Since E4J is a global initiative, we will be promoting the platform to the relevant academic communities, teacher training institutes, curriculum developers and teachers throughout the world.
In this context, we invite you to share age-appropriate educational materials you may have on UNODC mandated areas:
- Crime prevention;
- Criminal justice;
- Organized crime;
- Terrorism prevention;
- Human trafficking and migrant smuggling;
- Firearms trafficking;
We would be grateful if any materials could be sent to the UNODC-E4J e-mail address at firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject “CSOs – educational materials”.
For more information on E4J, please see the attached info sheet or visit our website.
Thank you in advance for your assistance with this. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.
