Volunteer Online wth the UN: Development and Promotion of E4J Initiative’s Resources

UN Volunteers platform is offering an online volunteer opportunity, as it is looking for French-speaking individuals to support the development and promotion of Education for Justice (E4J) initiative’s resources in French. That is a component of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC)’s Global Program for the Implementation of the Doha Declaration

The E4J initiative was developed as a result of the Doha Declaration adopted by the 13th United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice in 2015. The Declaration recognizes the fundamental importance of universal education for children and youth, for the prevention of crime, terrorism, and corruption, as well as to promote sustainable development. E4J aims at empowering the next generation to become socially responsible global citizens with a sound moral and ethical compass who are prepared to tackle the world’s challenges related to the rule of law. It seeks to prevent crime, promote a culture of lawfulness, help educators teach on rule of law issues, and encourage students to actively engage in their communities and future professions in this regard. To achieve these objectives, different age-appropriate educational tools and activities for the primary, secondary, and tertiary education levels have been developed by E4J together with partners. 

Volunteers needed:
