TO commemorate Human Rights Day, Motril City Council hosted a conference where 250 children from schools across the municipality were invited.
Taking place at the Calderón Theatre on Tuesday, December 10, Mayor Luisa García Chamorro explained the importance of equality in society where human rights have laid the foundation for a fairer world.
As part as an education-based initiative that has been rolled across Costa Tropical, the conference centred upon the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This was a milestone United Nations’ pledge which stated the fundamental rights every individual is entitled to regardless of their race, religion, sex, language or status.
In addition to an open discussion, several short films were screened which explored discrimination and tools schoolchildren can use to combat stereotypes. These aimed highlight how young people can become a major force in political, economic and social transformation, where their ideas can lead to positive benefits globally.
