Dams are among the most impressive human constructions that exist. And yet, their ecological impact is mixed – they are used to store water used in agriculture, to regulate water levels, and to produce clean, emission-free energy and are also... a hefty environmental burden.
The Mission of CyberDodo (2-40)
Once upon a time there was a planet where all the young ones were protected by their parents
All except those of the species the most powerful, the most intelligent, the most dangerous : the children of mankind !
Because this situation was unacceptable, in 1989 the United Nations, or UN, asked all countries to sign a contract guaranteeing the rights of children. This fundamental text is known as the International Convention of the Rights of the Child.
This Convention is very important to you, child of this planet in danger, because it applies to all aspects of your life. But for it to really protect you, you must know this Convention as well as possible because from freedom is born from knowledge !
Let's have a look at it together .
It talks about children, all human beings less than 18 years of age. (Episode 2 = Articles 01+02)
The Convention states that adults must take into account the best interests of children before all else (Episode 3 = Article 3) and that good parents know better than anyone else what is best for their children (Episode 5 = Articles 5+18). The Convention also says that the abduction of children is prohibited (Episode 11 =11).
If the Convention was enforced, no child would ever die of hunger again (Episode 6 = Articles 6+24) or of illnesses that are curable (Episode 36 = Articles 24+27). The children of mankind would be protected from cigarettes (Episode 35 = Articles 6+24), abuse (Episode16 = Article19), dangerous work (Episode 25 = Article 32), prostitution (Episode 27 = Article 34) and drugs (Episode 26 = Article 33).
In a world that respected the Convention, children would not be subjected to sexual abuse (Episode 33 = Article 34), trafficking or slavery (Episode 28 = Article 35), nor torture and they would never be sentenced to the death penalty (Episode 29 = Article 37). Courts would be fair (Episode 31 = Article 40), listening to children when their rights are concerned (Episode 12 = Article 12) and would not separate them from their parents even in cases of conflict (Episode 10 = Article 10).
