Human Rights

SGI's activities to promote human rights education focus on respect for the equality and dignity of all people and treasuring each individual. Its exhibition "Toward a Century of Humanity: An Overview of Human Rights in Today's World" was shown in eight countries in support of the UN Decade of Human Rights Education (1995-2004). SGI also contributed to the launching of the UN's World Programme for Human Rights Education in 2005, and in 2006, SGI joined with other NGOs to form the NGO Working Group on Human Rights Education & Learning in Geneva. The SGI representative to the UN in Geneva currently serves as chair of this group.

Most recently, in 2012, SGI, together with the Human Rights Education Associates and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, jointly produced a 28 minute film titled "A Path to Dignity: The Power of Human Rights Education" to raise awareness about the importance of human rights education.
