WHEN RIGHTS GO WRONG

WHEN RIGHTS GO WRONG
Inequality and social rights

Pre-School/Primary Education (3-12 year olds) Ulysses, Penelope and Telemachus - adventures with the mandalas

Summary of the interactive story

Ulysses, Penelope and Telemachus are three elderly people who have spent most of their lives travelling to defend social rights wherever they are violated.

To travel they use the power of the magical mandalas: the mandala of dignity, the mandala of justice and the mandala of collaboration. When they put them together they can teleport themselves anywhere in the world.

Together with these three characters we will take a virtual journey which will help us reflect on what basic needs, social rights, inequality and the defense of rights are.
