Then apply to the World Federation of United Nations (WFUNA) Human Rights In Action Training Program! From 27 to 31 August 2018 we will provide you with the key knowledge & skills to make a difference in your community! The training will take place in the Palais des Nations, UN’s Geneva Headquarters.
The training, held in July at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, will empower young individuals to take a leading role in upholding human rights in their communities and around the world. Participants develop a deeper understanding of international human rights and key practical skills in project development and implementation.
The five-day training is divided into two components, education and project development. During the education component, participants will learn about available human rights instruments and implementation mechanisms, how the international community develops human rights standards, and what is being done to ensure implementation worldwide. Throughout the training, participants will have the opportunity to interact with key actors in the human rights field.
The project development component of the training will focus on teaching practical skills in the development and implementation of human rights education activities. All participants will learn to create basic education and awareness raising projects on human rights issues to be implemented after the training.
