CALL FOR APPLICATIONS 

20th Informal ASEM Seminar on Human Rights – Training 

 Deadline extended to 26 September 2021 (23:59 SGT)

About the training

This online training is part of the Informal ASEM Seminar on Human Rights Series (ASEMHRS) which aims to promote greater cooperation and better understanding of human rights issues in Asia and Europe.

The ASEM Partner countries account for the largest proportion of older people. Furthermore, the speed and the magnitude of population ageing and its impact on society pose  great challenges to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The training serves as a follow-up to the 20th Informal ASEM Seminar on “Human Rights of Older Persons”, which called on ASEM Partners to ensure that lifelong learning opportunities are available for everyone, including providing opportunities for older persons to improve their digital literacy and to learn other skills relating to their life transition and interest.

Under the title “Innovative Ways to Protect and Improve the Human Rights of Older People in the Era of Digital Transformation”, the training will offer practical guidance on establishing, adopting, implementing, and monitoring a national plan of action for human rights of older persons in the context of digital literacy and digital inclusion.  By promoting institutional measures and by designing and implementing age-friendly policies, it aims to enhance the capabilities of key personnel to improve the situation of older people in a digitalised world.

Trainers and speakers:
  • Vanessa Steinmayer, The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP)
  • Emeritus Professor Andrew Byrnes, University of New South Wales (Australia)
  • Professor Titti Mattsson, Lund University (Sweden)
  • Johanna E.M.H van Bronswijk, Eindhoven University of Technology (the Netherlands)
  • Yeong-Ran Park, Kangnam University (Republic of Korea)
  • Dr Hyun-sik Chang, KOICA Family Foundation (Republic of Korea)
