The NZ Human Rights Commission and the NZ National Commission for UNESCO extend a warm invitation to participate in a conference to take place in Auckland / Tamaki Makaurau, 11-13 July 2004. The conference is also being held with the support of the New Zealand Ministry of Education and the New Zealand Baha'i community. The overall theme for the conference is "Living and Learning Together: the role of human rights education in strengthening communities in New Zealand and the Pacific". - Formal education: pre school through to tertiary; and, - Life long learning: community development, the workplace, media and in our own lives. The Conference will particularly appeal to all those interested in applying human rights education principles - whether as practitioners, managers, academics, teachers, or educators in a related field, students, care givers, community workers and those who have a general interest in human rights. The objectives of the conference are: - To mark the end, in 2004, of two International Decades: the UN Decade for Human Rights Education and the UN Decade for the Rights on Indigenous Peoples. - To share information, strategies, delivery styles and resources between human rights educators and interested people and organisations within New Zealand, the South Pacific and the wider Asia Pacific Forum region. - To develop ongoing networks and communication systems to enable closer relationships and collaboration on human rights education. - To provide initial information and assist with the development of the NZ Action Plan for Human Rights (NZAPHR) which aims to help set the agenda for human rights over the coming decade. Key note speaker and conference programme We have the privilege of announcing Special Rapporteur on the right to education of the UN Commission on Human Rights, Professor Katarina Tomasevski, will be the key note speaker at the Conference.
