The annual #MyFreedomDay campaign is a way to raise global awareness about human trafficking and slavery. The campaign asks that throughout the day, students around the world participate in activities to celebrate freedom and speak up and act out for those who are unable to.
Generation Global is participating in the campaign by offering opportunities for dialogue in video conferences on human trafficking and slavery with young people across the world.
How can I participate with my students?
Step 1: Please create a free Educator account on our Portal by following the steps on this page.
Step 2: Log into your account. Click on the Create a class button from the Teacher dashboard. Select a name for the class and click on Create class.
Step 3: Click on the class you have just created. From the right sidebar, select Add students. A pop up box will appear with an invite link. Simply copy the first invite link and share it with your students via email, WhatsApp, Google Classroom groups, or any other means. After your students have successfully registered, their names will appear in your class. When students click on the link, they will be prompted to complete Part 1 of our Introductory topic, the Learning Dojo. This should take them around 5 minutes. At the end of Part 1 they will be able to create their account.
