SGI actively participated in the 41st session of the Human Rights Council (HRC) from 24 June to 12 July. On 4 July Elisa Gazzotti of SGI was invited by the Pacific Rim Institute for Development Education to join a panel titled “Development Education: Case Studies from Around the World” as Co-chair of the NGO Working Group on Human Rights Education and Learning (NGO WG on HREL).

On this occasion, Gazzotti gave a presentation on Human Rights Education and youth, introducing the website “Transforming Lives: The Power of Human Rights Education.” She emphasized that this was created as a resource particularly geared to reach young people, in the hope that they can realize their rights based on what they learned and promote a better future and environment in their respective communities.
