Last Saturday on the 22nd of June, Human Asia has hosted the 7th Global Human Rights School in One-Stop Prep located in Apgujeong-dong, on the topic of “College Preview: Human Rights Advocacy on Campus”. Ms. Suah Cho, currently an undergraduate at the Stanford University and an active past member of Human Asia youth club, was invited to conduct the workshop.
The student participants were asked to present their very own hand-made posters to demonstrate the human rights issues they would like to promote in schools and their plans of implementation. Ms. Cho was pleasantly impressed by the creativity of students shown in their various ideas for human rights activities, and continued on to render a more elaborate lecture to explain the definition of “Human Rights’’ under the Universal Declarations of Human Rights, some important features of basic human rights, as well as some examples of specific human rights articles, for students’ enriched understanding.
Ms. Cho also shared some of her personal experiences in seeing some human rights campaigns on campus, attending human rights-related lectures, as well as her own interests in arts-related human rights activities throughout university life, in letting the students realize that there are many diverse yet creative ways for them to advocate human rights at schools in the future.
At last, students were given the opportunity to engage in interactive group discussions and collaborate with other participants, whom they have met for the first time at this workshop, on a range of critical human rights issues for short presentations, exchanging each other’s unique insight on the matters.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude for all those who have attended and supported this year’s Global Human Rights School and would like to ask your continued interests and participation in our upcoming human rights workshops for youth in coming August.
