Commission visits Ashfield Boys’ High School as part of Good Relations Week 2022

04 Oct 2022

Students at Ashfield Boys’ High School have learned how human rights are at the centre of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission ran workshops with pupils studying Government and Politics, and Preparation for Adult Life classes. Representatives from the Commission highlighted how the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals focus on ending extreme poverty, fighting inequality and injustice, and protecting our planet.

The visit formed part of the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission’s involvement in Community Relations Week 2022, which has the theme “Change Starts With Us” and a focus on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

As part of its educational outreach, the Commission also spoke with the Year 11 students about its work in Northern Ireland, specifically in the context of sport, business and climate change.

Chief Commissioner Alyson Kilpatrick added:

“The Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission was delighted to be able to speak to students at Ashfield Boys’ High School as part of Good Relations Week. It is so important that we are able to highlight our role in promoting and protecting the human rights of all in Northern Ireland. We appreciated the opportunity to raise awareness of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and how we integrate these into our work on sport, climate change and business.

We thank the school for having us out and wish the students all the best with the rest of their studies.”
