Message by Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO :
"Tolerance is a new idea, one which we need now more than ever.
It leads us to respect cultural diversity, ways of life and expressions of our own humanity.
It is a necessary condition for peace and progress for all people in a diversified and ever-more connected world."

"Balloons serve as a conduit in this lesson in which students "burst"
stereotypes that unfairly label individuals or groups...
Students will :
- learn the meaning of the word stereotype.
- work in groups to come up with stereotype statements.
- discuss whether the statements are fair.
- write what they learned from the activity.

"Have you ever been teased? How did it feel? Have you ever teased anyone? If so, WHY?
Teasing and bullying in schools is a worldwide problem that can have devastating consequences for the general school climate and for the right of the student to learn in a safe classroom environment without fear. Bullying and teasing can also have negative lifelong consequences -- both for students who bully and tease and for their victims. Direct teasing and bullying seems to increase through the elementary years, peak in the middle school/junior high school years, and decline somewhat during the high school years. However, while direct physical assault seems to decrease with age, verbal abuse appears to remain constant. Whether the teasing or bullying is direct or indirect, the key component is that the physical or mental intimidation occurs repeatedly over time to create an ongoing pattern of harassment and abuse. The effects can and are devastating!"

Live together in perfect harmony
Side by side on my piano
Keyboard, Oh Lord, Why don't we?"
People by SLY AND THE FAMILY STONE :
"Sometimes I'm right and I can be wrong
My own beliefs are in my song
The butcher, the banker, the drummer and then
Makes no difference what group I'm in
I am everyday people, yeah yeah
There is a blue one who can't accept the green one
For living with a fat one trying to be a skinny one..."
by John Lennon :
"Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace"
- Ugly sung by Sugababes
"People made me feel like life was unfair
And I did things that made me ashamed...
But there will always be the one who will say
Something bad to make them feel great...
Everybody talks bad about somebody
And never realises how it affects somebody
And you bet it won't be forgotten..."
