When childhood is over, adulthood prepares new challenges for you. Questions grow, but often your environment does not encourage an open dialogue and the opportunity to speak about problems in public. This year within the RIGHTS NOW! human rights programme we aim to create a safe space where together with parents and children we will discuss how to grow up without traumas, challenge stereotypes, teach and learn without discrimination, and build trust at home and at school.
For the first time, RIGHTS NOW! programme goes online: between 24 April and 3 May, we offer everyone to join online broadcasts on the docudays.ua main page. The programme will last for nine days, each of which will cover a specific topic: Human Rights, Cyberbullying, War, Family, Activism, Equality, Opportunities, Education. In addition, the audience will have a chance to participate in discussions with professionals from the civil, education and public sectors. During the discussions with experts from the civil, educational and public sectors we will talk about overcoming domestic violence, about cyberbullying and youth activism, children’s rights violations in Crimea and Donbas, and the widespread stereotypes about HIV-positive children.
All events of the human rights programme will be accompanied by a sign language interpretation that was made possible through a partnership with community organization Vidchui.
