Human rights are not (only) history! How to teach about the past and act in the present to inspire others
On December 8, 2021, during a virtual panel discussion, we met with fantastic speakers to talk about the importance of historical education and how to combine history with human rights education. Our guests shared some good practices that can help others to start or develop their own activities in this field.
All our Fellows conduct a hands-on local civil society initiative, an "Action Project." Check out some of our community's projects from recent months.
ARTIVISM - on the use of Art as a social transformation tool
Inspired by the collective actions of Youth Peace Ambassadors Network, Maciej Rotowski of the 2019 Warsaw Fellowship organized a 5 day-long training on artivism in Spain. Together with YPAN he brought together artists and activists and equipped them with necessary tools to advance peace and human rights.
Musings on patriotism, Polishness and... pierogi!
Natalia Grzankowska and Julia Konarska of the 2019 HIA Warsaw Fellowship share on their IG profile @kto_ty_jestes personal stories of belonging and identity, in particular giving voice to Poland’s historically marginalized groups.
“Stereotype Breakers”. Perception of Jewish community and culture in Poland
Magdalena Fuchs has long been fascinated by the Jewish culture and interreligious dialogue. It was only natural that her idea for the Action Project had to involve education and tolerance. As a lawyer and human rights activist, she knows best the value of teaching solidarity with minority groups and the real danger of hate speech.
We connect passionate people.
