RRSA Article of the Week - (Article 27)

Updated: Oct 22, 2020

Hello all,

This week we are exploring Article 27 - Adequate standard of living, with reference as well to Article 26 - Social security. This covers all the things that children and young people need to live well such as food, clothing and a safe home.

October 17 is theInternational Day for the Eradication of Poverty, so right now is a great time to explore Article 27. During the pandemic child poverty has increased by 15% globally, with almost 1.2 million children worldwide living below the poverty line - 4 million ofthese children live in the UK.

The activities in this week's pack will help your class reflect on what is needed for an adequate standard of living and what can be done to prevent child poverty in the UK and around the world.
