Saturday 12th of September, the Amnesty International NSW Action Centre will organize the annual Student Conference for those who want to gain a greater understanding of Human Rights and an introduction to the work of Amnesty International.
The event is open to students in years 11 and 12 as well as University students.
This year, the focus will be on the new Demand Dignity campaign with both an international and an Australian perspective.
Protecting the rights of those living in poverty is not just an option – it is an essential piece of any solution.
The conference will explore what DIGNITY means and how we can campaign for the billions of children, women and men facing levels of poverty that undermines their basic human rights and their ability to live with dignity.
FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN TAKE ACTION! And join us for a program of dialogue, discussion, and informative, action-based workshops.
Guest Speaker (expose the global goals and issue of the campaign) and Actives Workshops (Amnesty Crisis response Work/Online activism/Guerrilla, creative Campaigning …) are the basic elements of the day but he program will be specified later on.
We are currently asking for expressions of interest in this event scheduled for the 12th of September 2009.
The Registration Fee will be approximately 15$ (Conference pack and food included)
People living outside of Sydney may be eligible for financial assistance to attend the event.
