The purpose of the project is to educate the citizens to respect for human rights today, means, also, recognize the same belonging to a single humanity and a single planet and then educate the recognition of otherness distant and commitment to international justice.
In fact, the rights of citizens of the richest countries should not be in contradiction with the rights of the people of the rest of the world. So in addition to the recognition of certain principles universal minimum, there must be the will of ethics and politics to build new forms of encounter, recognition and international cooperation.
