We live in difficult times with different crisis exacerbating human suffering, widening inequalities, and threatening peoples’ livelihoods. The UN Secretary General has described it as a human crisis that is fast becoming a human rights crisis challenging societies at their very core moving people further apart, distancing conversations. To face the future in a spirit of hope, investing in the education of young generations, in creativity and in the continuous encounter with the others will be pivotal.
In this effort, the Global Campus of Human Rights wishes to provide safe spaces where views on important topics for our sustainable future can be freely imagined and exchanged, crossed, fertilised, and experimented, in the encounter with others.
Our next online conversation will take place on International Women’s Day (IWD23) and it will focus on the situation of women’s rights at the local, EU regional and international levels (for example in Italy, EU and Iran) and focus on certain policies and possible courses of actions to embrace equity.
This Conversation will also provide an occasion for partners, our staff, professors, alumni and students to actively participate in the discussion to imagine a gender-equal world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination where difference is valued.
