World Programme for Human Rights Education

Plan of Action, Third Phase

Human rights education makes an essential contribution to the realization of all human rights. In 2004, the General Assembly proclaimed the World Programme for Human Rights Education (2005-ongoing) with a view to support and encourage national action and strengthen partnerships and cooperation. The third phase (2015-2019) of the World Programme focuses on strengthening implementation of the first two phases and promoting human rights training for media professionals and journalists; adopted by the United Nations Human Rights Council in 2014, this plan of action provides practical guidance for implementing this phase nationally. It targets all stakeholders, including governments, national human rights institutions, civil society organizations, higher education institutions as well as intergovernmental organizations.

Hide / Show Abstract

The first step to solving many of the world’s crises and chronic problems lies in more, and better, human rights education. From climate change to poverty, conflict, discrimination, disease and beyond, our progress must be grounded in the knowledge that we all belong to one human family and that we share important principles, values and rights.
