Event description

Description

Amnesty International is a worldwide human rights organization. In alignment with the UN Declaration of Human Rights, it works for every human’s social, cultural, political, ethnic, gender, and environmental rights. Saskatoon’s Group 33 is holding a regional forum on November 2—Human Rights and Corporate Accountability—that will explore the deleterious effect of business (resource extraction, production of clothing, electronics) on local communities from Southeast Asia and Central America to Canada. From the blatant disregard of indigenous land rights to the wholesale destruction of the environment, we must take action and stand up for human rights.

The morning will kick off with keynote speaker Alex Neve. Alex is a Canadian human rights activist and the secretary-general of Amnesty International Canada. We will then move forward with panel discussions and group sessions exploring the many ways business and industry affect human rights. The afternoon will address two key questions: What can human rights defenders do about it? What solutions might industry provide? There will be a catered hot lunch buffet included with the ticket purchase.
