Launch of documentary film 'A Path to Dignity'
Cover of DVD 'A Path to Dignity'
Geneva, 20 September 2012 -- Yesterday the documentary film A Path to Dignity was launched at the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva. A Path to Dignity: The Power of Human Rights Education is a 28-minute movie that presents three stories illustrating the impact of human rights education respectively on school children (India), law enforcement agencies (Australia) and women victims of violence (Turkey).

A key message is that “one person can make a difference” in solving problems in society. Human rights education can transform people’s lives, empowering individuals on a path to dignity and bring about positive change in their respective communities and societies. In this sense, human rights education plays a fundamental role in ensuring equality and equal opportunities, combating discrimination and preventing human rights violations.

HREA produced this film jointly with Soka Gakkai International (SGI) and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) as a tool to raise awareness about the positive role that human rights education can play in fulfilling human rights.

A Path to Dignity is available in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Japanese, Russian and Spanish and can be viewed at www.path-to-dignity.org.
