Who We Are

The World As It Could Be Human Rights Education Program (TWAICB) is an outgrowth of a series of successful initiatives carried out since 2006 to inspire people of all ages to take actions, large and small, that lead to equality, justice and dignity for all. These initiatives use the creative arts to deepen learning about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR); they give participating youth the voice to teach their peers and adults about the importance of the UDHR principles.


As part of our efforts to bring attention to the UHDR and its continuing relevance, we have created, and continue to develop Resources that aim to help people take effective action in their most immediate circles in connection with one or more of the UDHR Articles.

For The World As It Could Be: 4 Questions at a Time initiative, we interview leaders of non-profit organizations and/or community entities to collaborate with them to identify their four questions to inspire more thinking about the issues they address, while also connecting these ideas to the UDHR.
