Once business has wrapped, it’s time for fun and exploration! We invite you to join us at our evening networking events:
Canadian Museum for Human Rights (Friday)
Sponsored by Tourism Winnipeg
Opened in 2014, the Canadian Museum For Human Rights is a unique exploration of the importance of human rights. Interactive digital technology, video, film and art are designed to educate and inspire. As the world’s first museum dedicated to human rights, the museum focuses around the idea that respect and understanding of human rights can serve as a positive force for change in the world.
The Museum is an innovative structure of curving lines and bold geometry. Many of the surfaces are irregular, with more than three-quarters of the walls sloped at unusual angles. The Museum has won numerous awards for it’s design.
Human rights and environmental responsibility are interconnected. If we protect the planet’s air, land, water and living things, we also support people’s rights, such as the right to live in health and safety, to earn a sustainable livelihood, and to maintain culture. Human rights education is a lifelong process. Through our variously themed programs, including workshops and tours, we strive to give students the tools to help them think critically and with empathy.
