We are going to share today is what national day ? To the extent that equality is one of the elements of the triptych “Freedom, Equality, Fraternity” and that the Universal Declaration of Human Rights proclaims precisely World Day for Equal Opportunities, one is justified in asking the utility of this day.
Why set up a World Equal Opportunities Day December 3?
Unfortunately, there is a long way from lip-cutting, and not only in France but also in many other countries around the world. Obtaining a degree that is a determining factor in accessing a job does not give the same advantages to everyone.
Young people from modest backgrounds, suburbs and neighborhoods, due to persistent discrimination and also a certain social and cultural determinism are poorly represented in the most highly rated formations, even if they have the potential.
Equal opportunity is not natural
There are many initiatives to try to restore equality of opportunity. The World Equal Opportunities Day initiative will be a first on Thursday 26 November 2015 and will make possible a citizen mobilization for the success of all young people.
