“Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home – so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
In honor of this year’s Human Rights Day, Younity paid tribute to the wise words of Eleanor Roosevelt by organizing an online screening of the documentary “A Path to Dignity: The Power of Human Rights Education”, which talks about successful practices and projects in India, Australia and Turkey, illustrating the power of human rights education in transforming people’s lives and empowering individuals to make a difference in their communities. Next, we put Younity’s collective knowledge to the test and did a quiz on human rights using polls in Teams. To wrap things up, we watched a comedy sketch on how proper human rights education can save you a lot of embarrassment!
