Establishing a common understanding of the terms and concepts of human rights is an important part of capacity building for welcoming, caring, respectful and safe schools and communities. This idea was repeated during the research and consultation for this Toolkit. This page includes terms and concepts that will help you understand the content in the Toolkit. You can use these terms to start and support conversations about human rights.

This page is a fantastic place to start your work for building schools and communities that are welcoming, caring, respectful and safe for all Albertans.
