I don’t know if she was purposefully putting him on the spot, but just recently someone asked one of our very new volunteers –
“So how do you go about impacting change within an established society which has very ingrained beliefs and views?”
Without even a moment of hesitation he grinned and said “education, education, education.”
At Nil By Mouth we run an school accreditation scheme to recognise best practice in challenging sectarianism. We also provide workshops and assemblies FREE of charge to schools interested in raising awareness of sectarianism within our modern society by taking part in our Champions For Change Award.
To find out how your school can take part contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0141 418 7194
The pupils have a much greater understanding of what sectarianism is and what it means to different groups and individuals within our society. They can appreciate the negativity that can arise from this and through the tragic reason for the founding of Nil by Mouth the consequences of some extreme sectarian behaviour. I hope this will hold them in good stead for the future and help them to become more compassionate now and in the future.
