Earlier this year, UNAA hosted One Voice One Humanity, a hugely successful event which comprised of a TedX style conference focused on human rights issues in Australia and all over the world. Next month, we will be running our second event, One Voice One Humanity NEXT GEN, which will be a youth targeted conference that comprises of youth speakers engaging young audiences. This is because we want to both provide young activists with a platform to speak, as well as reach out to our focus audience for Human Rights Campaigns – young people, our next generation, who have the power to make the difference in the coming years.
One Voice, One Humanity event recognizes two international days, United Nations Human Rights Day and World Day of Social Justice by providing a platform to give Voice on some of the Australia’s/global human rights/social justice challenges and achievements.
One Voice, One Humanity: Next Gen presents the diverse voices of youth advocates, youth ambassadors and students with lived experience, coming together as agents of change to share their perspective on the human rights themes below, bringing hope as they work towards a better future.
The aim of this event is to amplify the awareness and understanding of our basic Human Rights, provoke dialogue and inspire actions from the youth and the wider community. The “Voices of the Next Generation” are invited to share their aspirations, achievements and passion, collectively reflecting the principles of Human Rights:
ie. together we all share equally in the inalienable rights which everyone is entitled to as a human being–regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.
The event is a TEDx style curated event of
5-7minute narratives, performances, creative expression and videos clips, highlighting the complexity of Human Rights issues and celebrating the many achievements.
This year we will be exploring some key themes pertaining to the Youth and their future …
1. Dispossession and Displacement
2. AI impact on Human Rights / Humanity
3. Climate Impact on Human Rights / Humanity
In addition, our UNAA(NSW) Schools program participants will be contributing their work and creative expression on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
