250 million children cannot read nor write – a scandal –

Results of newest surveys of the UNESCO on the issue of leteracy show that about 250 Million children can neither read nor write. This is a scandal in the world.

Being able to read and to write is a human right.

Writing about body language and nonverbal communication, believing that this a very important part of communication, I at the same time, especially being aware of these results, want to underline how important the competence of literacy is. It is a basis competence intensely connected with the competence of nonverbal communication.

The one cannot exist without the other.

Don`t ……………….forget this. Don`t forget to read, to write and to reflect what happens around you in the world.

especially with children. Children are our future.

“Literacy is a fundamental human right and the foundation for lifelong learning. It is fully essential to social and human development in its ability to transform lives. For individuals, families, and societies alike, it is an instrument of empowerment to improve one’s health, one’s income, and one’s relationship with the world.

The uses of literacy for the exchange of knowledge are constantly evolving, along with advances in technology. From the Internet to text messaging, the ever-wider availability of communication makes for greater social and political participation. A literate community is a dynamic community, one that exchanges ideas and engages in debate. Illiteracy, however, is an obstacle to a better quality of life, and can even breed exclusion and violence.

For over 65 years UNESCO has worked to ensure that literacy remains a priority on national and international agendas. Through its formal and non-formal literacy programmes worldwide, the Organization works to realize the vision of a literate world for all.”

China for kids

When I came across this website I felt like a kid. 😉

And at the same time I felt invited to learn more about China, the Chinese people and the Chinese culture by following the advice of this website in a very playful way. Playing and exploring always is like an adventure. and to be honest I am convinced that being part of an adventure help to vanish all obstacles, all resistance to any kind of intercultural problems. And being a child invites you to explore a culture more or less on a noverbal level. And this is the chance you and we have. Trust this playful, nonverbal approach to you and the other. Trust the stranger in yourself and make him familiar to yourself. 😉

Trust the child in yourself.
