All interaction between and across members of the school community should be based on equality, non-discrimination, inclusion, respect, and dignity. A variety of activities can be employed to achieve this, including training or open meetings on rights and responsibilities; outreach projects in the community; activities to address bullying; activities on communication and conflict resolution; exhibitions with human rights themes; and partnerships with other Human Rights Friendly Schools around the world.
