This webinar commemorates the United Nations International Day of Human Rights (which falls on December 10th). Amandine Roche would chat about human rights, womanhood, peace, efforts towards peacebuilding, and our attitudes and actions towards the same. A true path towards human rights and refining our understanding and approach to establish peace is through refining and fine-tuning the nature of our heart’s qualities. Amandine would draw from her personal and professional experiences, working as a peacekeeper and mindfulness expert in Afghanistan among other nations, thus enriching our understanding of this.
