A free Student to World online course from Global Nomads Group
Learn how people exercise their human rights every day, how the rights for marginalized communities are not always protected, and how youth can protect human rights with guidance from the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Global Nomads Group leverages the power of storytelling to promote empathy and bring social issues to life through day-to-day realities. Read real, impactful, stories from youth participants around the world that reveal deep truths about global issues. Then youth can enhance the conversation by sharing their own stories with fellow Student to World users and participate in moderated live conversations.
