Festival: Faith in Human Rights
8 December @ 12:15 pm – 4:00 pm
Next year it will be 75 years ago that the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was signed. And still these rights are violated in every part of the world. Human rights are not something far away, think about the CoronaCheck-app and the right to privacy. Or the difference in salary between men and women en the right to equality. Subconsiously and indirectly even you can contribute to violation of human rights. For example, by buying clothes that are produced with childlabour. Or eating a bar of chocolate of which the cacao is harvested by slaves. But how do you know? How do you find out? And what action can you take yourself?
Human rights can not be taken for granted. We have to stay alert that we live up to them and that starts with more knowledge and awareness. That is exactly why The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS) organise the festival ‘Faith in Human Rights’ at 8 December.
Hearing the stories of other people, participating in a workshop, visiting a market and an exhibition will show you that human rights play an important role in your life as well. You will be inspired how to contribute in creating a culture in education, organisation of even society with care and attention for human rights.
This festival is an initiative of Centre of Expertise Global and Inclusive Learning and Initiatives of Change. The Royal Conservatoire is also a partner of this event and provides one of the workshops in the form of a concert. This concert is also – freely accessible – performed on Friday evening 9 December in Amare.
