3DC works with students in primary and secondary schools to design and implement Bills of Representation, Rights and Responsibilities for their schools.

If the next generation are to build a better world, they are going to need practice, especially in governance. Most schools would like their students to have a say in how the school is run and experience leadership roles, but don’t have a student-led framework for making this a reality.
Facilitated by a 3DC mentor, students research Bills of Rights through the ages, and then draft one of their own for their institution, laying out their rights and responsibilities while in school in a process that ensures diverse representation across the student body.
The 3Rs Bill is then implemented, and any student invoking the rights or responsibilities listed has the support of a representative from an upper-year level to make their case, providing advocacy experience for older students and an amplification of younger voices who have more time in the school to come at stake.
