Human Rights Implementation Centre involved in new film
Press release issued: 3 August 2017
This week saw the release of a short-animated film to raise public awareness surrounding human rights abuses at sea – abuses that often occur out of sight and out of mind.
The charity continues to innovate, advocate and lead on the explicit issue of human rights in the maritime environment. This new film series will fully explore all aspects of our work through close academic and industry partnerships to ensure balanced representation of the issues exposed.
This can be a complex and emotional topic and we wanted to create a contemporary, engaging video that would help all seafarers, regardless of their nationality, understand what their human rights are. We are proud to have been selected to support Human Rights at Sea in this campaign and work has now begun on the second video.
Human Rights at Sea believes in making all of its materials freely available to everyone and has established a new area on its website for the downloading of free educational materials – here.
Should an organisation or individual wish to sponsor a future film, or series of films, please contact: email@example.com
