Universal human rights. Written down 1948. Relevant forever?

Come and join the conversation

Age Connects Wales and the British Institute of Human Rights invite you to the 4th year of the hugely successful Human Rights Tour. The idea is simple; BIHR go across the UK holding free to attend pop-up events in local communities, raising awareness about human rights, how they are relevant in everyday life & having a space for debate & discussion. This year Age Connects Wales are proud to have invited BIHR to visit Cardiff on 30th September. By working in partnership we are able to ensure the events are rooted in local concerns as well as covering the national debates. To book your free place visit http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/human-rights-tour-2014-cardiff-30-september-registration-12193720747

The Human Rights Tour is for you whether you are an interested individual, a voluntary sector worker or a public servant; come along and join the conversation. The content for the pop-up event is a mix of presentations, discussions and interactive sessions, with some creative elements too!

  • Where do human rights come from? Our human rights history in 60 minutes!
  • Human rights law for non-lawyers: Introduction to the Human Rights Act
  • Making human rights work in your work: Applying human rights in real life situations
  • The human rights conversation: Human rights in the media, in politics and in your community

This event will provide an excellent forum for learning about human rights, and networking with organisations and representatives in our community. We hope you can join us. We would also appreciate it if you could circulate this email to interested staff and colleagues.

This year’s Human Rights Tour will also be visiting 11 other towns and cities across the length and breadth of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. If you can’t join us at this event you can find out where else the Tour will be visiting by following this link: http://www.bihr.org.uk/Tour2014
