The International Centre for the Promotion of Human Rights at the Local and Regional Levels under the auspices of UNESCO and the UNESCO Chair in Human Rights and Human Security invite you cordially to the next generation networking event "Let’s talk about Human Rights Careers - Making the hobby of the few the responsibility of the many".

The event seeks to establish a link between today’s stakeholders and tomorrow’s actors: Exchange practical knowledge of working in the broad field of human rights, discuss the realization of future perspectives and aspirations, and gain insights into professionalization opportunities at the local level - a sphere gaining ever-more importance in the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals and the international human rights agenda!

The event is organised for members of the next generation. Students of all disciplines, young professionals and career beginners can exchange with established human rights experts from different levels, regions and with different professions.

We invite you to join us for this exciting event!
