Being Human Conference, Glasgow – August 2018


beinghuman_4_LogoWe are delighted to announce the latest in our series of Being Human conferences titled Human Rights and Social Care: Putting Rights Into Practice

This will take place at the Scottish Universities Insight Institute in Glasgow on Tuesday 28th August 2018.

This event will also include the launch of C-Change Scotland CEO Dr Sam Smith’s book Human Rights and Social Care: Putting Rights Into Practice.

We hope the event really will put the ‘human’ into human rights. Drawing inspiration from the famous Eleanor Roosevelt quote about the importance of rights in those ‘small places close to home’, we would like delegates to leave the event with a sense of what is possible when they/we utilise our own agency to advance the human rights agenda in the field of social care.

Our Key Note Speaker this year will be Professor Alan Miller (Special Envoy of the (Chair of the First Minister’s Advisory Group on Human Rights Leadership Scotland) who offers a wealth of insight into human rights and social care. The conference will also cover topics including the rights of the child, of women, of older persons and of disabled persons.

Our other speakers will include:
Dr Sam Smith (CEO, C-Change Scotland)
Juliet Harris (Director, Together Scotland)
Emma Rich (Executive Director, Engender)
Henry Simmons (Chief Executive, Alzheimers Scotland)
Paul Stratton & Shona Perfect (C-Change Scotland)

We will also have a Panel Discussion with an expert panel and audience participation. Our Panel will include:
Professor Nicole Busby (University of Strathclyde)
Judith Robertson (Scottish Human Rights Commission)
