Educational Human Rights Film Released

The U.K.-based charity Human Rights at Sea has released the first film in a new educational series titled: An Introduction to Human Rights.

The charity aims to highlight the explicit need to openly and transparently discuss the full range of human rights issues applicable in the maritime environment.

Developed through partnerships with Bristol University Human Rights Implementation Centre and Marlins, V.Group’s training business, the aim of the short animation films will be to bring a new angle and style to public awareness surrounding human rights abuses at sea that often occur out of sight and out of mind, and the protections to which everyone is entitled to under established national and international law.

Human Rights at Sea has added an accompanying infographic to its new film. The infographic is aimed at providing a copy of the detail within the film if the viewer is unable to stream the film, or has a short period to download the materials.

The first of the free educational materials can now be accessed via a new dedicated work area on the charity's Home Page named "Free Educational Materials."

The infographic is available here.
