The European Network of National Human Rights Institutions (ENNHRI) and the Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR) are offering a self-directed online course on “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: What Role for NHRIs in the UNECE Region?”
This course is for staff from ENNHRI members wishing to explore how to use the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and the platforms it offers at national, regional and international levels, to further human rights outcomes and the work of national human rights institutions in the region.
The course will be divided into 6 modules as follows:
|The 2030 Agenda, its links to Human Rights, and the Role of National Human Rights Institutions|
|The Commitment to Leave No-One Behind and Human Rights Standards and Principles|
|Understanding SDG Architecture at National, Regional and Global Levels and the Specific Entry Points for NHRIs|
|A Human Rights-Based Approach to Data Collection and Leaving No-One Behind|
|Integrated Human Rights and SDG Reporting|
|Delivering on both human rights and the SDGs for Sustainable Recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic|
At the end of the course participants will be able to:
- Recognise the links between human rights standards and principles and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
- Acknowledge opportunities and limitations of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to further human rights outcomes nationally
- Apply their NHRI mandate and institutional priorities to furthering a human rights based approach to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
The course will be offered online from 1 November 2021 – 24 January 2022.
The course includes six modules and will be based on videos, reading materials, one to two webinars, case studies and one assignment. As a self-directed online learning course, participants will be able to complete the modules at their own pace, except for 1-2 scheduled webinars. The webinars will allow participants in real time to share experiences and discuss opportunities and challenges with each other. Time investment is expected to be about three hours per module.
