On April 15th 2021, ALDA and the Human Rights and Peace Institute of Caen have organised a workshop held in French for the young Macedonians francophone, on the “Freedom award”.
This online workshop gathered 16 participants, interested in finding out more on the “Freedom award”, the nominees while discussing democracy, inclusion, and digital citizenship.
The workshop started with a quick quiz on topics such as: women’s right to vote and the importance of digital technologies during the elections.
Then, it continued with a series of useful visuals thanks to which participants discovered the profiles and backgrounds of the 3 nominees, and the reasons why they were chosen:
- Sonita Alizadeh, Afghan activist against forced child marriage;
- Agnes Chow, democracy activist in Hong Kong and
- Omar Radi, imprisoned Moroccan investigative journalist.
The Freedom award is the results of a pedagogical project aiming at raising awareness on the notions of peace, freedom, and respect for human rights
Finally, the Human Rights and Peace Institute moderators have guided the young participants throughout the entire process of voting for their favorite nominee.
The Freedom award is the results of a pedagogical project aiming to raise awareness on the notions of peace, freedom, and respect for human rights. It targets young people across the world and making them a unique jury. In that respect, youth generations – aged from 15 to 25 – get to vote and elect the winners they consider as the most deserving. The Freedom award represents a strong tribute to every person that fought and will keep fighting in reaching this ideal of peace.
The workshop has been organised as part of the “Normandie pour la Paix” actions, by ALDA along with the Human Rights and Peace Institute of Caen.
