Description

The Declaration of Human Rights of 1948 was a fundamental response to historical injustice, especially the unprecedented Nazi crimes and the Second World War. But where do human rights stand in the year 2018? At the first youth conference Right here, right now: Human Rights! we discuss the importance of human rights for us personally and for social solidarity. Together we look at their origin, the 30 articles and embed them in current contexts, such as escape and migration. We also address the question: What can each of us do to defend human rights? In the course of the conference we learn tools to get involved in everyday life. We’ll be celebrating together the spirit of 70 years of human rights.

Arrival day is on November 9, the departure will be on November 12. Check-In starts at 4pm, check-out will be at 1 pm.
