Human Rights Workshops

The Rights Platform is commencing a new human rights training programme in 2017, funded by the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission. There are two elements to the programme.

1. General human rights workshop

 What: One off workshop to highlight human rights approaches and their practical application.                        Who: Human rights specialist and a human rights organisation will deliver the workshop.                                When: Wednesday 18th January 10am - 1pm                                                                                                  Where: Bawnogue Enterprise Centre

 Cost: Free of charge, all those interested must complete a booking form and return to by  Monday 9th January. There will be a limited number of places available.


2. Human rights training for groups

The Platform envisages working with 3 organisations/groups between February and April 2017. The training will consist of approximately four workshops with each selected group. We are looking for organisations to complete an expression of interest form identifying a group they work with that would be interested in participating in the programme. Groups must be well established and be ready to use human rights approaches and frameworks in their work. The training will be delivered by human rights specialists and human rights organisations.

If a group you work with is interested in participating in this programme, please complete an expression of interest form and return to by Monday 9th January.
