This game will help you to explore how adults’ interactions with children will have an impact on their human dignity.
It can only be played on a laptop or computer. You will find instructions for play when you first enter the game.
At the heart of everything we do at Children’s Parliament is our commitment to helping every child and adult understand the importance of human dignity. The idea of human dignity is at the heart of every human rights instrument. The concept of human dignity is the belief that all people hold a special value that’s tied solely to their humanity. All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. This means every person should be treated with dignity. It should not depend on outside factors.
This game will help you to explore how adults’ interactions with children will have an impact on their human dignity. The scenarios and the scripts in this game are developed by members of Children’s Parliament based on their personal experiences and their peer research. By walking through different scenarios in the Rightsburgh, your character will have options on how you’d like to relate to children. The dignometer (an instrument used to measure human dignity) will then show how the child’s human dignity is affected by your character’s behaviour.
We would like you to walk through all of the scenarios to reflect on how both good and bad practice impacts on children. Do not worry about getting the right answers all the time. Instead, we encourage you to use this opportunity to reflect on your own actions, pick up some helpful suggestions and consider changes you can make to ensure human dignity for all. Have fun!
