'A Path to Dignity' screened at Council of Europe

Panel discussion at screening of A Path to Dignity at Council of Europe in Strasbourg

Strasbourg, 29 November 2012 -- Today our new documentary film "A Path to Dignity: The Power of Human Rights Education" was screened at the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, France. Almost fifty people attended the screening, which was followed by a panel discussion. The screening and panel discussion were organised in the framework of the conference "Human Rights and Democracy in Action - Looking Ahead: The impact of the Council of Europe Charter on Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights Education", which brought together 200 government representatives, international institutions, civil society organisations and education professionals in Strasbourg on 29 and 30 November 2012, and was organised by the Council of Europe in co-operation with the European Commission and the European Wergeland Centre.

The film, a joint produced by HREA, Soka Gakkai International (SGI) and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), is a tool to raise awareness about the positive role that human rights education can play in fulfilling human rights. A Path to Dignity premiered at the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva on September 19th and will be screened on Human Rights Day 2012 at the UN General Assembly in New York.
