Fourth phase (2020-2024) of the World Programme for Human Rights Education

The Human Rights Council, in its resolution 39/3 (27 September 2018), decides to make youth the focus group of the fourth phase of the World Programme for Human Rights Education, with special emphasis on education and training in equality, human rights and non-discrimination, and inclusion and respect for diversity with the aim of building inclusive and peaceful societies, and to align the fourth phase with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and specifically with target 4.7 of the Sustainable Development Goals. OHCHR, in consultation with States, intergovernmental organizations, national human rights institutions and civil society, including youth groups and youth-led networks, elaborated a plan of action for the fourth phase of the World Programme (A/HRC/42/23), which was subsequently adopted by the Human Rights Council through resolution 42/7 (26 September 2019).
