OUR BIGGEST ASSET IS THE PASSION OF OUR STUDENTS, AND ITS ENORMOUS RIPPLE EFFECT. MEET SOME OF THE LEADERS OF GENERATION HUMAN RIGHTS WHO FUEL OUR BELIEF IN THE BEAUTY OF TOMORROW.
Sarajevo International Peace Conference
Generation Human Rights took part in the Sarajevo International Peace Conference. GenHR was able to not only lead youth workshops in the city but we were also able to bring youth to Begov Han, a recently flooded village to bring art-relief to children. On May 20th extreme floods affected Bosnia, Serbia, and Croatia and left cities and villages under water and triggered over 3000 landslides.
International youth took part in hands on training about taking oral histories and developing their listening skills. They were able to take these new skills and immediately put them to use when they met the children of Begov Han who had only just lost their homes to the floods and land slides. In Begov Han the youth led art healing workshops along with local psychologists and trauma counselors.
Youth were also able to meet with Nobel Peace Prize winner Mairead Maguire who shared her inspirational story of starting the Peace People in Northern Ireland.
