Human Rights

A free Student to World online course from Global Nomads Group

Seven youths raise their hands in unison before a sunset

Human Rights

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.

Explore the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights and the Sustainable Development Goals as anchors for how people around the world come together to fight human rights violations. With unique features including student vlogs about human rights in their countries and tips for taking concrete actions, youth learn about humanity, interconnectivity, and how they can work together toward a better future.

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
