World Human Rights Forum in Marrakech
Approximately 7,000 people from 95 countries participated in the 2nd edition of the World Human Rights Forum in Marrakech from November 27-30, hosted by the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH). The World Human Rights Forum is an initiative aimed at promoting a universal and brotherly space of dialogue and discussion between the many stakeholders who are currently acting to respond to people’s aspirations for dignity, equality and justice. Designed to bring people and organizations together, the Forum consists of lectures, thematic debates and independently organized activities.
At the 2nd edition of the Forum in Marrakech, over 100 topics were addressed and 160 training sessions, community, sports and cultural activities were organized in the city. Nearly 400 journalists from 20 countries were present to ensure wide media coverage. Women’s rights, climate change, migration and the 2015 UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were at the heart of the event.
