Do you want a fairer and more equal society for all?

“Equality is the soul of liberty; indeed, there is no liberty without it.”

Frances Wright

Vulnerable populations are growing day by day, causing a progressive increase in inequalities. This problem is particularly evident in situations of humanitarian crises caused by war, natural disasters and when fundamental human rights are systematically violated through unjust discriminatory laws.

Those who suffer most from all this live in a permanent risk of exclusion that accentuates the gravity of the situation. Migrants, refugees, indigenous peoples, children, women, the elderly, and people with special needs or disabilities are some of the groups that suffer most from this situation.

Do you believe it is possible to achieve a world in which the dignity of every human being is respected and there is no unfair discrimination? What do you think are the keys to achieving this? If you want to be part of this fight for equality and go from observer to activist, sign up for TEDIS 2024. You will have the opportunity to make your voice heard and defend your ideas by doing your bit to help create a fairer world where everyone matters, has a voice and can enjoy a full life.

How can you participate?

  1. Write an inspirational speech.
  2. Register and participate in the online phase.
  3. If you have been selected, present yourself in the finals.

What is the subject of the speech?

SDG 10 of the 2030 Agenda. “Reducing inequality within and between countries is integral to achieving the goals for sustainable development .”

“Reducing poverty in the most disadvantaged areas of the planet, promoting the social, economic and political inclusion of all people, especially vulnerable groups, promoting policies at the international level to improve the regulation and control of financial markets and institutions, and encouraging development cooperation and foreign direct investment in the regions that need it most.”

Why is it important?

The issue of inequality is a permanent pending subject in the history of humanity. Although legislation has been improved and each historical stage has had its heroes-activists in this regard: Martin Luther-King, Mother Teresa of Calcutta, or Nelson Mandela, to name some of the best known, inequality remains a great challenge to human progress and a moral issue that concerns us all.

What do we need?

It is essential to distribute resources equitably, to invest particularly in education and in the development of the professional skills needed in today’s world. It is absolutely essential to implement social protection measures, to fight discrimination, to help marginalized groups out of their situation and to promote international cooperation.

What can I do?

The first step you can take is to observe your surroundings. What inequalities do you find in your immediate environment? What tools do you have at your disposal to improve the situation? You may also be interested in the performance of the government of your city, community or country. Make your surroundings aware of this reality and share your vision of the importance of achieving an increasingly fair and egalitarian society.
