The World As It Could Be

The University of San Francisco Department of International and Multicultural Education offers an Annual Summer Institute in collaboration with The World As It Could Be.

The World As It Could Be Human Rights Education Program is an outgrowth of a series of successful initiatives carried out since 2006 to educate and inspire youth and adults to further human rights for all people. These initiatives have used the creative arts to deepen learning about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR); they have also given participating youth the voice to teach their peers and adults about the importance of the UDHR concepts.
