About the Campus Event Toolkit

The AAAS Science and Human Rights Coalition is pleased to offer this toolkit to students as a resource for planning events on their campuses and in their communities on the intersections of human rights with science and technology. This toolkit includes an organizer's guide, "conversation starter" videos, suggestions for facilitating conversations, ideas for involvement, and tools for collecting feedback and evaluating impact. 

The toolkit is designed to inspire conversations about an array of issues at the nexus of science and human rights, including:

  • Protecting the human rights of scientists, engineers, and health professionals;
  • Applying science and technology to human rights research and documentation;
  • Scientific associations as a constituency for human rights;
  • Professional ethics and human rights; and
  • The human right to enjoy the benefits of scientific progress and its applications.   

To get started, check out the Guide for Organizers.
These resources are available free to students. If you use the toolkit, send us an email at srhrl@aaas.org. We can connect you with other students, put your event on our calendar, and promote the event through our social media accounts on Twitter and Facebook.

The Campus Event Toolkit was made possible by the AAAS-Andrew M. Sessler Fund for Science, Education, and Human Rights
