The British Institute for Human Rights in partnership with the HRCS, are bringing the Human Rights Tour to ACT Aberdeen on 8th March 2017.
The idea is a simple one. The event is free to attend and aims to:
- Raise awareness about human rights and their relevance in everyday life
- Provide a space for debate and discussion
What happens on the day?
We provide a basic introduction to the law that protects our human rights here at home. We explore how the Human Rights Act is not simply about courts, but relevant and real to us all in everyday life, especially in the hands of those who provide public services and those who use them. Importantly, we create an opportunity to engage in some of the important debates going on at the heart of power about the future of our human rights law.
Using a combination of presentations, interactive sessions, discussions (and creative activities!) these full day events provide a much-needed space for people from all walks of life to look at the law, the everyday practice and the portrayals of human rights.
Who can attend?
Everyone is welcome. These events attract diverse audiences from police officers, doctors and nurses, social workers and others from public services, as well as advocates and policy staff from voluntary and community groups, and members of the public who want to find out more.
You can reserve a place here.
