Human Rights and Global Citizenship
The story of humanity itself
The term right refers to things that it is permissible to do, be or have. Many people know something about some rights but not about others, and when people are not familiar with human rights, discrimination, intolerance, injustice and oppression emerge.
Global Citizenship supports a new model of citizenship based on full awareness of the inherent dignity of every human being, on his belonging to a local and global community and on an active commitment to obtain a more just and sustainable world. The proposal of Global Citizenship Education aspires to integrate education for development and human rights, education for sustainable development, peace, interculturality and gender into a coherent vision, observing the interdependence between human beings.
