Verdighet?

 
En ung og imøtekommende kontaktlærer hilser hyggelig og tar meg med til klassen sin. Vi er på en videregående skole i Rogaland, og hun presenterer meg som veileder på dagens Global Dignity treff. Hun og elevene har snakket litt om verdighet på forhånd, og om hva som skal skje denne dagen, men det er tydelig at elevene er spente på hva de skal lære.
 
Verdighet er ikke et ord som tenåringer bruker til daglig. For å gi ordet innhold, gjør vi en øvelse. Vi lager et tankekart på tavlen. Hvilke ord assosierer ungdommene med verdighet?

 

VerdighetVåre assosiasjoner med ordet verdighet. Håndskriften tilhører min tavle-assistent.

 

Begrepet begynner å formes i klasserommet, og jeg følger ærlig opp med verdighetshistorier fra min egen ungdomstid. Om utfordringer, tilfeldigheter og om å være god nok. Ungdommene som snart er ferdige med første året på “helse og oppvekst”-linjen lytter interessert. Snart avløses mine historier av elevens egne historier. Noen prater uten filter, mens andre holder litt mer igjen. Noen historier er sterkere enn andre.
 
Når Global Dignity arrangerer treff på skoler, er det vanlig at veiledere og elever møtes først for å skape en forståelse for begrepet og fortelle hverandre verdighetshistorier. Deretter samles alle elever, lærere og veiledere i gymsalen hvor utvalgte historier blir fortalt foran alle til stede.
 
I klasserommet vårt er det særlig en historie som rører oss alle, og i samråd med kontaktlæreren velger vi ut denne eleven til å fortelle sin historie. Som veileder kjenner jeg på mange følelser. Det er en sterk historie hun skal fortelle, så fjernt fra mine egne opplevelser.
 
Like før hun skal opp på scenen, viser hun hendene sine til meg. De skjelver. I tillegg til de rundt 400 elevene, er kronprinsen, ordføreren, fylkesmannen, fylkesvaraordføreren, politimesteren og andre til stede i salen. Det kreves mot og trygghet til å gjøre det hun nå skal gjøre.
 
Det blir hennes tur, og hun går opp på scenen. Hun tar mikronfonen ut av stativet. All frykt er plutselig borte. Med klar og tydelig stemme forteller hun:
 
Jeg kommer fra en familie med utfordringer, og min historie handler om at jeg gruet meg til jul. Jeg var veldig lei meg og prøvde å ikke vise det til andre, men så oppdaget kontaktlæreren min det likevel. Hun spurte meg om hva som var galt, men jeg skammet meg sånn og sa ingenting i begynnelsen. Heldigvis fortalte jeg det til slutt, og da sa hun til meg, “kan du ikke feire jul hos oss?”, og det gjorde jeg. Så i dag vil jeg takke kontaktlæreren min for den verdigheten hun viste meg. Takk for at du var der for meg. Du er veldig grei.
 
Det er ikke bare veilederen hennes som tørker en tåre.
 
En sterk historie, en modig og reflektert tenåring og en kontaktlærer med et stort og varmt hjerte. Vi skjønner at kronprisen har truffet med Global Dignity initiativet.
 
Hun gir meg en klem og stråler. Hun har god grunn til å være stolt. I det hun forsvinner ut av salen, innser jeg at dette er en av mine absolutt mest givende dager på lang tid.
 
Et godt valg i hverdagen er å ta en kort pause og tenke på verdighet og hva du legger i det. Husker du en situasjon der du viste verdighet for andre, eller at andre viste verdighet overfor deg?

 

God stemning i gymsalen under Global Dignity treffet

 

“Global Dignity er et uavhengig, ideelt og politisk nøytralt initiativ etablert av H.K.H. Kronprins Haakon, Professor Pekka Himanen (Finland) og leder av Operation Hope, John Bryant (USA). Ideen til Global Dignity oppsto i møter om internasjonale utfordringer under World Economic Forum i Davos i 2006. Initiativtakerne så et potensiale i å bruke begrepet verdighet som en kilde til positiv endring og utvikling.
Visjonen til Global Dignity er å virkeliggjøre den universelle retten alle mennesker har til å leve verdige liv. Tanken er at vi alle har mulighet til å styrke andre menneskers verdighet – og derigjennom styrke vår egen – gjennom valgene vi tar og måten vi bruker våre ressurser på. På denne måten kan vi alle bidra til en positiv samfunnsutvikling.” (globaldignity.no/)
