The Hobart Human Library

A Fairer World - The Hobart Human Library

The Hobart Human Library delivers diversity education workshops in schools and workplaces to address discrimination and bullying through the power of personal storytelling. It is a library with a difference – the books are real, living people who have been trained to tell their stories. Human libraries are used around the world as a simple way to challenge stereotypes and build empathy. They do this by providing a comfortable space for people to speak with a ‘book’ who has encountered discrimination because of their culture, religion, refugee background, gender, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability.

They are now spending $30,000 less each year in skip bin disposal costs.  The junior and secondary schools and the boarding house now recycle well and less contamination is seen as students, staff and parents learn about how to avoid waste and recycle and compost more effectively.
