Exposition “The Future of my Dreams”: 3 to 10 December

How do the students in OKAN-education (education for non-native newcomers) see their future? That’s a question the students themselves were asked to answer by the creation of a unique work of art. In total, six schools and more than fifty students were up for the challenge. The fruit of their labours can be admired on campus Diepenbeek and campus Oude Gevangenis at the University of Hasselt. At this location, the works of art make clear that the students believe in a future with a great respect for human rights.

Breakfast with refugees on the 10th of December

Human Rights Week in Limburg was concluded on Monday 10 December with a breakfast with several refugees telling their own story. The participants were invited to listen to different guest speakers and had the chance to talk one-on-one with the refugees present. Amongst the guest speakers were Ms. Hilde Stals, Co-President of Amnesty International Belgium, and Mr. Ugur Tok, president of the Platform Peace and Justice and employee of Solidarity with Palestine. They told the attendees how they devote themselves every day to the protection of human rights. At the end of the breakfast event, the collaboration between Scholars at Risk (SAR) and UHasselt was made official with the signing of a charter.
