Education for Human Rights

"We have to teach people that war takes us nowhere. If we fight war by war, conflict by conflict, it will lead to a total destruction. everyone should teach one another that we need to treat each other with compassion" - student in Dominican Republic
UNESCO Associated Schools in 10 countries were selected to participate in this film project which aims to raise awareness on key issues related to human rights in schools around the world. Secondary school pupils were asked to reflect and express their opinion about issues such as gender, diversity, violence, exclusion and participation. The film invites the spectators to internalize, at an individual level, the issue of human rights education and the way in which these concepts and ideals are understood and lived by young people.
