Physical Professional Human Rights Trainings resume

The Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights (RWI) working in collaboration with the Centre for Applied Legal Research (CALR) is currently holding a week-long training session on human rights.

The Professional Training Programme (PTP) began on the 28th of September 2020 and will run up until the 2nd of October 2020. The training programme is being held at Cresta Lodge, Harare.

Due to the infectious coronavirus disease, COVID-19, the PTP was held virtually with training modules and training material shared electronically. With the easing of lockdown restrictions and a decrease in the number of infections, the RWI and CALR have resumed physical professional training sessions.

The host, Cresta Lodge initiated the training sessions with some safety guidelines to follow to safeguard people’s wellbeing against COVID-19. They further explained to participants the measures Cresta lodge has taken to protect guests against COVID-19.

The PTP training group is being trained under the theme of human rights and local governance in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The theme has been adapted to account for the new global order under COVID-19. It is anticipated this adjustment will equip participants with knowledge and appreciation for the role of local governance and human rights in achieving the SDGs and in the face of grave threats from an ongoing global pandemic.
