The exploration of human rights principles and instruments, ongoing critical reflection and inquiry and extensive sharing of experiences allow participants to strengthen their leadership capacity to engage in effective human rights learning. GHRLDI GOAL To strengthen the capacity of human rights organisations to undertake human rights learning efforts in their various communities, aimed at fostering a global culture of human rights. The GHRLDI aims at enabling participating organisations to undertake more effective human rights education activities in their various countries and communities. To this end, the Program places a strong emphasis on the transfer of learning and on follow-up activities. Participants attending the Program will develop an Individual Action Plan for putting their learning into action as part of the training. Therefore, when submitting an application for one of our programs, organisations, together with the candidates they nominate to attend the Program, should consider how the transfer of their learning might take place within their organisation after the Program.
