Students and young activists have always been at the front lines. Whether you are learning or teaching, here are some resources to help you take your activism to the next level.
Anytime, Amnesty is a special four-part series from our Youth Advisory Group (YAG), that delves into human rights issues across the globe. Hosts Fin Spalding and Anita Nair, bring you the stories of people who are on the front lines and also offer advice on how you can create change.
This podcast was recorded on the land of the Wurundjeri and Bunurong People of the Kulin Nation.
Our Youth Leadership Committee (YLC)
“We are Amnesty International’s Youth Leadership Committee (YLC), a group of passionate young students aged 14-18 who engage in impactful work for Amnesty International and for humanitarian issues we are passionate about.”
The YLC undertake human rights projects, create activist resources for young people, organise conferences to connect young people and provide a youth lens to current Amnesty campaigns.
The YLC’s current project: Voices of Amnesty!
“Throughout this podcast, we’ll have a look at a range of human rights issues through a younger, different lens by discussing and clarifying them with youth activists within the community.”
Human Rights Friendly Schools
Amnesty International supports schools and their wider communities in all regions of the world to build a global culture of human rights. Human Rights Friendly Schools aim to empower young people and promote the active participation of all members of the school community to integrate human rights values and principles into all areas of school life.
WHAT IS A HUMAN RIGHTS FRIENDLY SCHOOL?
A Human Rights Friendly School places human rights at the heart of the learning experience and makes human rights an integral part of everyday school life. From the way decisions are made in schools, to the way people treat each other, to the curriculum and extra-curricular activities on offer, right down to the very surroundings in which students are taught, the school becomes an exemplary model for human rights education.
