New resource explains Australia’s democratic freedoms

Secondary teachers now have access to free online educational resources exploring Australia’s democratic freedoms, thanks to a unique partnership between education not-for-profit Cool Australia and the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC).

The launch of the Story of Our Rights and Freedoms curriculum unit coincides with the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the defining document for human rights in the modern age.
