The online networking event seeks to establish a link between today's stakeholders and tomorrow's actors: Exchange practical knowledge of working in the broad field of human rights, discuss the realization of future perspectives and aspirations, and gain insights into professionalization opportunities at the local level - a sphere gaining ever-more importance in the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals and the international human rights agenda!
The event is organised for members of the next generation. Students of all disciplines, young professionals and career beginners in public management at all levels can exchange with established human rights experts:
Douglas Ragan has worked in youth development with NGOs, local and national governments and the United Nations for the past 25 years. Currently he is a Programme Management Officer for the Human Rights and Social Inclusion Unit of UN-Habitat, based in Nairobi, Kenya. He specializes in urban youth development.
Emma Broberg works as an administrative officer in Gothenburg, Sweden. For more than 10 years she has specialised in the implementation and integration of human rights in the public sector, from the administrative and management level to meeting rights holders. She will share which methods, concepts and tools have worked well in practice and how projects in Gothenburg that did not work as expected were dealt with.
Jackie Smith is a civil society representative from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She works with civil society and academics, implementing human rights in cities and towns. She will share her experiences of using global human rights frameworks to shape policy in the city of Pittsburgh and help develop tools and models that can be used in other cities.
Windi Arini works as a Programme Officer for the Raoul Wallenberg Institute in Jakarta, Indonesia. Her work focuses on non-discrimination and inclusion, and she will share experiences from managing activities aimed at localising human rights in the context of the SDGs in Asia Pacific, as well as RWIs engagement with young people in the region.
