Eskura Human Rights Educational Resource Centre will hold its III. International Seminar on Human Rights Educational Resources. This year will focus on Environment and Human Rights. It will be held on 6th and 7th October 2021 at the Kursaal, Donostia-San Sebastian, in trilingual format (Basque-Spanish-English) and both in person and online.
Nowadays we are aware that a risk-free clean, healthy and sustainable environment guarantees the ability to exercise human rights. The awareness and exercising of fundamental rights are also becoming vital to keep ecosystems in balance, such as the right to education, information, public participation and effective resources as regards the violation of rights.
For all these reasons, different international, national and local experts will address the following subjects: the eco-pacifism, the eco-feminism, the eco-social education, the co-production of environmental and social inclusion policies, the land defenders, the situation of the oceans and the cryosphere, the eco-leadership, the responsible consumption… Tackling these from an educational perspective.
We will have speakers such as Mr. David R. Boyd, UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and the Environment, Yayo Herrero reserchear, Doctor in Educational Sciences and Expert in Ecofeminism and Ecosocialism, and UNESCO’s Climate Education Office which develops various resources for education systems.
