Transforming Lives Exhibition:
The Power of Human Rights Education
The exhibition "Transforming Lives: The Power of Human Rights Education" raises awareness of the vital role of human rights education in promoting dignity, equality, and peace, and in preventing human rights violations and abuses.
Human rights education not only equips learners with knowledge of human rights, it fosters the development of values, attitudes and behaviours that empower people to take action to defend and promote human rights, democracy, and rule of law.
As well as exploring the concepts of human rights and human rights education, the exhibition presents stories of how human rights education has led to transformation and empowerment in the lives of individuals and communities in Australia, Burkina Faso, Peru, Portugal, and Turkey. The exhibition also examines what ordinary citizens and civil society organizations can do to nurture a culture of human rights.
