Children's rights - Our rights. Slovenia at the Multicultural Festival in Canberra

The Embassy of Slovenia presented the project "Our Rights" at the Multicultural Festival on 18 February 2017 in Canberra.

It is essential to enable young people, particularly children who are still developing their identities, to learn about human rights, i.e. their rights and how to respect the rights of others. Human rights education and training is a lifelong process. If effective, it can prevent human rights violations by promoting a culture of peace, non-discrimination, and tolerance anchored in respect for universal human rights and fundamental freedoms. This is what the project seeks to achieve.
