Students from schools and universities in London joined Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi today for a screening of The Price of Free.
Your generation will take the lead in a new civilisation where we learn to care for each other, where freedom is non-negotiable, where every child - anywhere in the world - will be free, safe & educated. Kailash Satyarthi to students in the UK Parliament
The event was hosted by MP Dr. Rosena Allin-Khan, alongside fellow MPs and members of the 100 Million UK campaign planning group, including teachers' unions NASUWT and NEU. Students joined Mr. Satyarthi in a packed room at Portcullis House for a preview of The Price of Free. Following the screening of this award-winning film on child labour, participants embarked on a discussion on how this scourge can be tackled, both at international levels and in the community.
During the discussion, students had the opportunity to make their own commitments to ending child labour, share them with each other, and join forces to set up 100 Million campaign groups in their schools and colleges.
