Have you heard about the human library? Read this to know more.
The Human Library is an international organization and movement that first started in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 2000. It aims to address people’s prejudices by helping them to talk to those they would not normally meet. The organisation uses a library analogy of lending people rather than books. These people have “experienced prejudice, social exclusion or stigma,” and participants can ask them questions so as to “learn about the other person and also challenge their own prejudices.” The Human Library Organization is active in over 80 countries, in which there are a few permanent Human Libraries but most happen as events.
The world is moving at a fast pace, and if we want to be part of the changing trends, we must abreast ourselves and catch up.
