"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

Margaret Mead


The world is strange, incomprehensible, unpredictable and full of contrasts. It is beautiful and fascinating, while at the same time an inconceivably large amount of cruel and bad things happen. It can often be difficult to get an overview of what is going on and the logical relationships that connect them, and one is often at a loss as to what to do when one experiences injustice, regardless of whether it is happening to you or someone else.

The most important thing we want to communicate to you is that it is possible to tackle injustice and do things in a different and better way! People and society can change. It is precisely because it is we humans who decide what we are going to do that we can decide to do the positive thing and things that create a better world. But we need knowledge. If we do not know how we can change our society for the better, we will not do it.

This is why knowledge about human rights is so important. Human rights tell us something about how we can work to make the world a better place for everyone to live in.

So, welcome to the "world of human rights". We want to take you on a journey into history and back to the present day to teach you what human rights are, how they came about, and how you and I can use them.

Everybody is important and can make a difference. By speaking out and getting involved, you can also help to change the world.

Good luck!
