Around 170 students participated in around 30 activities and discussed human rights values ​​and principles in educational institutions in Boujdour, Smara and Laayoune, cities in the south of Morocco.

These events were an occasion to highlight their artistic and cultural creations and to give them the floor to express and interact on their rights and issues that concern them.

Several education staff and actors, representatives of elected councils, and authorities took part in these events.

The program of these events scheduled educational presentations on human rights and child rights, human rights movies, expressive dances, poetry, speech, drawings and songs. It also focused on human rights workshops delivered by the CRDH Chair and members.
