How can we make our communities safer places to live?
This workbook is for community members, community groups, organisations and human rights trainers who want to increase their own and their community’s awareness of how we can all work together to make our communities safe places to live.It is primarily designed for people who care about protecting women and children living near remote logging camps, plantations or mining areas in Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu, but it can be used by anyone with an interest in promoting human rights.
The ‘Educate. Advocate. Connect.’ manual helps in understanding what human rights are, when they might be violated, and how they are compatible with traditional values such as respect and care. It shows how community members can have influence on human rights issues, especially where logging is creating challenges for communities. It offers ways to report on human rights abuses as well as manage conflict and build community responsibility.
