Inspired by our flagship Fellowship in Amsterdam, HIA Junior was created to offer a similar collaborative learning & action opportunity on human rights related societal topics, for engaged youngsters.
HIA Junior 2019 Climate, Sustainability and Human Rights
From October 24 to 26, 2019 the 6th edition of HIA Junior took place. This year’s theme was Climate, Sustainability and Human Rights. The Junior Fellows, who live in different parts of the Netherlands, came together in Amsterdam with an important question: How can we as young people contribute in an inclusive and sustainable way to a cleaner environment?
The Junior Fellows visited the European office of the sustainable clothing brand Patagonia, took part in an up-cycling workshop of Fawaka Entrepreneurs’ School and together came up with innovative environmentally friendly products. From Greenpeace they learned the art of campaigning and let their parents switch to green energy.
On the last day of the programme, the Junior Fellows produced beautiful banners and protest signs for the national climate strike on Friday 29 November 2019.
We look back on a successful and inspiring HIA Junior.
