World Youth Forum 2021 | On the Occasion of Human Rights Day: Dec. 10

This is a recording of the annual World Youth Forum (2021). On December 12, the forum was held online to mark #HumanRightsDay under the theme: “Young People and Human Rights Education: Listen to Their Stories and Learn from Their Experience.”

More than 450 participants gathered from 20 countries and territories to hear the stories of young human rights educators who are engaged in youth empowerment activities. The unique activities and perspectives of the young educators to tackle social issues and build culture of human rights were shared with the participants. During the panel discussion, the importance of dialogue to overcome discrimination and hidden biases was underlined. There was also a screening of a new video co-created by Amnesty International, Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and Soka Gakkai International, which features the story of Irfaan Mangera, Youth Activism Programme Manager at the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation based in South Africa.
