What is the Role for Young People in Human Rights Promotion?

The conference participants including the panelists and moderator were wonderful in the discussion. The Lessons drawn were great.

The role of various Stakeholders in Human Rights Promotion was outlined during group-working sessions and during the general discussions. The discusions included the role of different topics, such as:

Briefly put, young people should and must strive to receive human rights education, they should get involve and intrinsically and integrally be motivated on human rights activities. Motivation here should not only be for money but for commitment and love for the advancement of our community. This is the only way we can enhance the society we live in.

For no society can develop if the respect of human rights is not considered paramount.
