‘Breakfast, Walk and Learn History’ project brought 20 young people together

GLA funded ‘Breakfast, Walk, Learn British History’ project begins with twenty youths exploring human rights, art, and critical thinking experiences. The ‘Breakfast, Walk, Learn British History’ project, which we have realised with the funding provided by the Greater London Authority, has started. 20 young people met at the HRS Office on 28 October and started the programme with a great breakfast. The young people had the opportunity to get to know each other during breakfast and had useful discussions at the seminar on human rights. Afterwards, the young people visited the National Portrait Gallery, where they had the opportunity to have an in-depth conversation about art.

The seminar in the office focused on open dialogue, critical thinking and new perspectives – no fixed truths were preached. The participants examined constructive approaches to conflict resolution and the need to develop both intellect and moral character. Themes of developing wisdom, preserving dignity, finding common humanity and creatively applying enduring principles recurred. Freedom of expression was analysed in depth, both as a fundamental right and subject to reasonable limits to protect other rights.
