GENEVA – From 22 to 25 July 2013, WFUNA held its third annual Human Rights Training for young UNA representatives in the Palais des Nations in Geneva. Seventeen participants from 12 different UNAs (Ghana, Greece, India, Italy, Nepal, Norway, South Africa, Sweden, Tanzania, Uganda, UK and Zimbabwe) joined our intensive 4-day course on Human Rights and the Project Management.
The training aims at empowering UNA youth world-wide to become active in the field of human rights and to provide them with the knowledge and capacity to implement human rights projects in their countries. The first two days were dedicated to the complex UN human rights system while the last two days concentrated on human rights project management. The program included sessions with diplomats, UN staff, NGO representatives, and WFUNA staff as well as open discussions and challenging case studies.
