Youth Debates

Youth for Human Rights: Youth Debates about Human Rights

This project was created from the reality that youth has to face everyday. Increasingly, social marginalization and obstacles due to globalization take place, which is a major challenge to co-existence. There is also a noticeable disregard for democracy and institutions, endangering peace in society.

This new project consists of a set of activities aimed at promoting learning, debating and critical thinking among young high school students.

The three main fundamental pillars established on this project are: training, awareness and promotion of social participation.

1. Four training workshops in:

  • Human rights

2. Guided tour to Reina Sofía Museum, where the impact of war and the importance of human rights will be analyzed with the students, using art as a learning tool.
