Novi Sad Human Rights

 

Within the framework of a cooperation agreement established between United Nations Associations of Serbia and the Dialogue Café Association, the opening of new Dialogue Cafe in Novi Sad is planned for December 12, next to two Dialogue Cafes in Serbia that are already operational, one in Belgrade and one in Novi Pazar. Thanks to this amazing partnership, the Dialogue Cafe network will be strengthen as a whole, but at the same time its branch in Serbia will be stronger.

Dialogue Café is based on the radical, but simple idea that people have many things in common, and given the opportunity, they will explore their common interests, new collaborations and stimulating ideas that address the major issues of today. This kind of conversations and collaborations can lead to new ways of thinking and doing: they can empower individuals and communities, break down prejudice and misconceptions, and promote greater understanding and co-operation across cultures.

Dialogue Cafe in Novi Sad will be organized by the United Nations Associations of Serbia with the support of Novi Sad 2019 European Youth Capital and Youth Office Novi Sad. The Official Opening of Dialogue Cafe Novi Sad will take place on December 12, 2019, from 15h to 17h (London time). The official opening will followed by a session focused on Human Rights and Youth with the aim of celebrating the International Human Rights Day.

20190509_Youngsters views on human rights

 

The general objective of this session would be the realisation of an exchange of ideas among the students of Dialogue Cafe Network countries, based on a critical, intercultural and interdisciplinary perspective with a focus on the promotion of counter-hegemonic knowledge and practices.

It is intended with this session that there is a question mark of each student about what moves us, what unworthy us, what is happening on the other side of the border.

We know that human rights are the basic rights of all human beings, but are they living in the same way in all countries? We also hope that this session will help students in their academic and personal lives.

Regarding the methodology, from an informal but at the same time critical pedagogical approach centered on school subjects. We cannot forget what the Dialogue Cafe is, and as such this will not be a class session, but an exchange of experiences among young people that brings them great value.

The activity will be composed of 10th year students, from the Language and Humanities class, with an average age of 15 years.

These students are focused on the subject of Human Rights and will work on this subject in their academic course so we think this sharing between cultures is important.
