It can take a village to create something beautiful, like the talented cast and crew who made Paul McCartney's musical film "Who Cares". In the #WhoCaresIDo Challenge, we would LOVE YOU to create art around standing up to bullying and standing up for kindness and inclusion. Grab a friend and collaborate - you could win an iPad Air or a trip to Los Angeles! Visit whocaresidoglobal.com to join!

Banner day!!! Rock Your World has received a $20,000 grant from Newman’s Own Foundation, the independent foundation created by the late actor and philanthropist, Paul Newman. We are so grateful and excited to put this funding toward Project Home: An exploration of issues pertaining to migrants and refugees. 💟
Did any of your students participate in the global walkout? Did you? Some great pics in the NYT today! Tell us your stories of participation—we’d love to hear your impressions. 🌏
Started a network of incredible organizations yesterday! Laughingdogstorybus, Love First, EarthXFilm, World Sustainable Development Forum, Art for Humanity and Engage the Vision and Rock Your World/Creative Visions. So much goodness is in store!
On this first day of Black History Month, we urge educators everywhere to begin teaching via the lens of human rights in every content area. We honor the rich and complex legacy of Black Americans who have and continue to shape our nation and world. Article 7 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law. All are entitled to equal protection against any discrimination in violation of this Declaration and against any incitement to such discrimination.
Read all about it—then take action! Tag a pal who you care for or who cares for you. Create art in the spirit of caring like Sir Paul and send our way! #whocaresido
Tell us who you care about! 2019 is the year of caring—start now! #whocaresido #paulmccartney #kathyeldon
Tell us what human rights issues your students care about—we’ll give you a starting place!🍎
Magical final day of the educator workshop. Pics forthcoming later this week. For now check out this excellent brainstorming for how to apply RYW across the curriculum! Closing circle was emotional in the best ways too. #museumoftolerance
It’s finally out! THIS is so exciting! Creative Visions Foundation proudly partnered with Subtractive Inc. and THE Sir Paul McCartney to present ‘Who Cares’, a short musical film starring Emma Stone. We have launched our global campaign around kindness, compassion and a stand up to bullying with #WhoCaresIDo. Tag those you care about and spread the message! I care about The Museum of Tolerance staff!
Engaged and dynamic educators—so committed to their students’ learning and their own. #humanrightseducation #museumoftolerance #rockyourworld70
Rock Your World Institute participants are arriving. We’re so excited to empower teachers to empower their students with the exploration and activation of human rights!
Did you know that today is Human Rights Day and the 70th anniversary of the #UDHR-Universal Declaration of Human Rights? Rock Your World believes that students deserve relevant learning opportunities and that teachers deserve to be able to put human rights education front and center in their classrooms. We've created curriculum to do just that. At Rock Your World, we celebrate and explore ways for youth to engage in human rights education every day. Our free, online curriculum is designed to provide 21st century learning skills and tangible ways to take action about issues students feel passionate about. Happy Human Rights Day--what a great day to learn and do more! #humanrightsday #humanrightseducation #youthinaction #creativeactivism #udhr70 @creativevisionsfoundation
Educators, parents, guardians-- got a minute? Here's a great opportunity to shine a light on kindness. Join the Love First: One Minute of Love Challenge! 💟 Each day at 12:30 pm call on your students to spend one minute performing an act of loving kindness. It doesn’t need to be complicated! Some possible ideas: * Hug a friend * Offer a compliment * Thank a guardian, parent or teacher Be sure you catch your students in the act-of-kindness in a creative way! Snap a picture, or make a quick video we’ll add it to our global ACT NOW Gallery. Let’s fill our hearts, lives and world with love! Be it! Feel it! Share it! Submit acts of kindness to www.actnow.rocks @creativevisionsfoundation
