Ahead of Human Rights Day, the UN Human Rights Office has launched its first ever Google+ Hangout series to facilitate public participation in a wide range of rights issues concerning persons with disabilities, minorities, and the impact of business on human rights. http://www.ohchr.org/EN/NewsEvents/Day2012/Pages/SocialMedia.aspx
The series of four Google+ Hangouts (a ‘Hangout’ is a type of live online video chat) kicked off with a discussion between civil society and business representatives worldwide at 15:00 CET on Thursday, 22 November. This first Hangout focused on ways to ensure the meaningful public participation of concerned communities when there is a possibility business operations may impact on their human rights. http://youtu.be/QLQ8-Lft870
The second Google+ Hangout, scheduled for 15:00 CET on 30 November, will feature a live video discussion between representatives of persons with disabilities, a UN expert and EU policy makers on the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
Ethnic, religious and linguistic minorities and another UN expert will participate in the third Hangout at 15:00 CET on 4 December.
The Google+ Hangout series culminates on Human Rights Day with a live video discussion with UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay on this year’s Human Rights Day theme - ‘Inclusion and the right to participate in public life’ -- at 15:30 CET on 10 December.
