Learn with films
Film is a great way to learn and share knowledge.
Our human rights education films are ideal for personal study, online staff training or group trainings. Or why not flip the classroom and get participants to watch films in advance of a training and come to your face to face training prepared!
You can also find links to and suggestions for great movies and documentaries that can be used as a tool for reflection and discussion – a perfect evening activity at a residential training!
