EducationUNESCO and Education Ministry Launch Comic Book to Tackle Taboos


In a groundbreaking initiative, UNESCO Delhi, in collaboration with the NCERT and the Union Ministry of Education, has unveiled a unique comic book titled “Let’s Move Forward.” This 32-page publication aims to sensitize schoolchildren to various societal taboos and challenge stereotypes. The comic book covers an array of themes, promoting awareness of crucial subjects such as gender equality, mental health, and social responsibility.

One of the central themes of the comic book is challenging traditional gender norms. It encourages the idea that boys can actively participate in household chores, including cooking, while girls can engage in sports like cricket. This shift in perspective seeks to break down long-standing stereotypes and foster a more inclusive understanding of gender roles.

The “Let’s Move Forward” comic addresses eleven essential themes, ranging from good health and emotional well-being to menstrual hygiene and internet safety. This comprehensive approach ensures that students receive a well-rounded education on crucial life aspects, promoting a holistic understanding of their well-being.

A noteworthy aspect of the comic book is its inclusive approach towards transgender individuals. By emphasizing the need for equal respect in society, it contributes to the ongoing discourse surrounding transgender rights and recognition. This reflects a commitment to promoting diversity and inclusivity from an early age.

Apart from societal issues, the comic book extends guidance to students on navigating the complexities of advertising. It warns against falling for misleading advertisements related to beauty products and bodybuilding supplements. This aligns with the broader goal of fostering critical thinking skills among students.

The comic book also advocates for inclusivity in school infrastructure by recommending wheelchair-accessible ramps and facilities for children with disabilities. It sends a strong message about the importance of sensitivity towards individuals with diverse needs, promoting a culture of inclusivity within educational institutions.
