 28-10-2018, 12:37

 PLATFORM FOR CIVIL EDUCATION AND CITIZEN PARTICIPATION IN DECISION-MAKINGDuring the 12thinternational festival of human rights documentary films "Bir Duino Kyrgyzstan-2018”, innovative laboratories and master classes will be held on topical issues in the framework of Sustainable Development Goals consistent with a human rights-based approach. Current global challenges of political and religious fundamentalism, violent extremism and terrorism have become a threat to public security, obstacles to peaceful co-existence and barriers to sustainable development for many countries in the world.

The labs will be held in November 13 to 15, 2018 in Bishkek.

The participants of events will be working over the tools and recommendations on empowerment of children, labour rights, cases of torture in penal setting.

The Global Storm: Growing Fundamentalism and Threats to the Future laboratory will focus on the issues of equality and human dignity; human rights defenders will discuss the financial literacy issues and the impact of Kyrgyzstan’s foreign debt on sustainable development. Jointly with the Bishkek mayor’s office Agency for Development, a workshop "Cities to Cities: The Role of Citizens, Partnership for Development” will be organised; while the Forum of Women’s NGOs, together with other organisations, will discuss "How to become a master of your own country?” by applying global experience of sustainable development with a human rights-based approach.

Master class on innovations in documentary films will be held by leading documentary filmmakers from Eastern Europe and Central Asia, and the laboratory of the Coalition for Equality will focus on raising awareness about the principles of equality and non-discrimination.

The last day of the festival will be dedicated to the development of political space for civil society organisations. The School of Peacemaking and Media Technology, together with key partners, will hold this workshop based on the following principle: democracy + human rights + fair and open government and equal partnership = sustainable development.

"The format of labs this year differs from the previous year’s as they are focused on topical issues,” said Lira Asylbek, director of Alternative Centre. - Workshops give an opportunity to key experts, representatives of civil society, CSOs, and authorities to focus on key present-day challenges, to understand what and who impedes the implementation of human rights, what happens around, how to mitigate these threats, which countries have successful outcomes of positive changes, and how to build equal partnership with the government, business entities for positive changes.”

Sharing experience, opinions, joint work over social problems will help find best innovative approaches and solutions. IT will also play its unique role in this process.

More Information about the human development configuration

People: Human development focuses on improving people’s lives, not just on the assumption that economic development automatically leads to social welfare for all. Growth of income is seen as a means for development, not the outcome.
Opportunities: Human development gives people more freedom to live an important life. In fact, it means to develop people’s skills and to enable them to use these skills. For example, training helps shape skills, but they will be useless if a person doesn’t have a job or their skills don’t fit the local labour market needs. Human development is based on three components: a person must live a long, healthy and creative life, must be well-informed and must have access to resources that ensure a decent life.

Right of choice: Human development is based on a wide choice. People are given opportunities; however, they don’t have to use them.

No one can guarantee happiness to a person; every person makes their own choice based on their own decision. The process of development – human development – must at least create an environment for people, individually and collectively, to enable the development of their potential in full and to create reasonable opportunities for them to live a productive and creative life.
