Transforming Lives: The Power of Human Rights Education
This exhibition raises awareness of the role of human rights education in promoting dignity, equality and peace and in preventing human rights violations and abuses.
Launched in 2017, on the fifth anniversary of the adoption of the UN Declaration on Human Rights Education and Training, this exhibition raises awareness on the vital role of human rights education in promoting dignity, equality and peace and in preventing human rights violations and abuses.
In addition to exploring the concepts of human rights and human rights education, the 25-panel exhibition presents real stories of how human rights education has led to transformation and empowerment in the lives of individuals and communities in Australia, Burkina Faso, Peru, Portugal and Turkey. The exhibition also examines what ordinary citizens and civil society organizations can do to nurture a culture of human rights.
This exhibition was co-organized by SGI together with HRE 2020, the NGO Working Group on Human Rights Education and Learning and the Platform for Human Rights Education and Training, with thanks to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.
