HERITAGE, MEMORY AND IDENTITY

Cultural heritage, understood as the essential element of the culture of peoples, becomes relevant in the creation of community identities and is a valuable means to transmit collective memories.

HUMAN RIGHTS EDUCATION

Human rights education is very valuable: it provides knowledge of fundamental rights and the mechanisms to protect them, while giving the necessary skills to promote, uphold and exercise human rights in everyday life. In this sense, human rights education works as a strategy to strengthen values, attitudes and social practices.

The CIPDH-UNESCO carries out human rights education initiatives and promotes formal and non-formal education actions through the use of innovative methodologies for the empowerment of people and the construction of fair and equal societies.The CIPDH-UNESCO carries out human rights education initiatives and promotes formal and non-formal education actions through the use of innovative methodologies for the empowerment of people and the construction of fair and equal societies.

GENDER, DIVERSITY AND INTERCULTURALITY

Discriminatory practices based on religious, political, ethnic, social, gender or any other grounds are the common basis underlying all human rights violations.

The CIPDH-UNESCO aims to contribute to the strengthening of the principles of equality, non-discrimination, diversity and interculturality, particularly addressing gender-based discrimination and stereotypes that have historically affected women.

From this perspective, support is provided to cities, governments and local communities in order to implement public policies with a rights-based approach aimed at promoting inclusion and equality.
