On 31 January and 1 February 2022 the Global Campus of Human Rights and the Kathmandu School of Law, together with supporting partners organised the first child-led Global Campus International Conference. The aim of this conference was to maximise meaningful child participation, promote intergenerational dialogue and stimulate research on children’s rights with a specific focus on mental health. This thematic was chosen by children themselves through previously celebrated consultations.
Global Campus International Conference 2022 [Teaser]
The Global Campus of Human Rights is inviting to the first child-led and child-designed Global Campus International Conference 2022.
The event is being coordinated by Kathmandu School of Law and the Global Campus, supported by UNICEF South Asia, UNICEF Nepal, the National Child Rights Council of the Government of Nepal (NCRC), Right Livelihood as well as the NCPA (National Child Protection Alliance, Nepal). Due to the Covid 19 pandemic the conference will be held exclusively online.
For many years the Global Campus of Human Rights, the most extensive human rights education network in the world consisting of about 100 leading universities, have engaged in Arts and Human Rights activities at local and international levels. Arts and Human Rights are closely related and need each other. Art can only flourish in an atmosphere of freedom from fear, violence and repression. As a global community, we need to stand up and defend human rights, democracy and the artistic expressions worldwide. With its universal language which attracts and empowers human beings more than any other means of communication, Art is the most powerful and joyful medium to promote the universal values of human rights.
This is the focus of the cooperation with many other institutions through a series of Artistic Events which have been developed and also planned for the near future like the Human Rights Pavilion, Cosmocafes, Art Exhibitions, Concerts, Film Screenings and Festivals, Theatre Performances, Visual Contests, Photo Exhibitions, Drawings-Illustrations and much more.
