Bridging our Diversities
In our globalized world today, we are experiencing more and more conflict based on ethnic, religious, and socio-economic identities and differences. Communities are struggling to respond to the impact of global migration patterns and the challenges associated with managing greater diversity.
As our understanding of human rights and equality continues to evolve, we are constantly challenged to ensure the equitable participation of women, youth and groups that have been marginalized, including indigenous peoples; refugees/newcomers; visible minorities; lesbian, gay, transgender, bisexual, queer and intersex (LGBTQI) people; and people living with disabilities.
More than ever, there is a need for approaches that promote understanding, respect, inclusion, equality and reconciliation.
Human rights education is a key strategy in this regard. At the Conference, we will work together to develop a dynamic articulation of the value of human rights education as well as document a collection of innovative and effective strategies and practices to respond to current global challenges.
