With the support of Seoul Metropolitan Government, on July 6 Human Asia and Korea University Human Rights Center co-hosted the first class of ‘The 14th Young Human Rights Activists Workshop’, under the theme of “Improving the Next Generation’s Perceptions on Immigrant Human Rights’. For the next four weeks, every Saturday participants in their twenties and thirties with an interest in immigrants’ human rights will observe lectures relating to migrants and immigrants’ human rights. They will then create their own lesson plans based upon this content. In mid-August, participants will teach these classes to a number of middle and high schools, based in and around Seoul. Human Asia would like to wish all of this year’s participants the best of luck with their activities over the next two months!
