Festival ‘Believe in Human Rights’

Next year will be 75 years since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was signed. And yet these rights are being violated in all parts of the world. Human rights are not far away, think of the CoronaCheck app and the right to privacy. Or the difference in salary between men and women and the right to equality. You can also subconsciously and indirectly contribute to the violation of human rights. For example, by buying clothing made with child labour. Or eating a bar of chocolate whose cocoa is harvested by slaves. But how do you know? How do you find out? And what action can you take yourself?

Human rights cannot be taken for granted. We must remain alert that we live up to them and that starts with more knowledge and awareness. That is precisely why we are organizing the ‘Faith in Human Rights’ festival on December 8th.

By hearing other people’s stories, attending a workshop, visiting a market and visiting an exhibition, you will see that human rights also play an important role in your life. You will be inspired how you can contribute to creating a culture in education, organization of even society with care and attention for human rights.

This festival is an initiative of Center of Expertise Global and Inclusive Learning and Initiatives of Change.
