The Human Library event has three main aims and objectives. The first one is to promote discussion in topics that aren’t common or even taboo in our society. In this event, he had the chance to hear about issues related to transsexuality and solo parenting, two topics that still face discrimination in our society. The second goal is related to social inclusion. By addressing these sensitive subjects, we expect that our participants became more aware of these situations and promote a more inclusive message in our society. The final objective is to provide information to our audience. Like I previously stated, the majority of these topics are difficult situations in our society. Due so, we asked experts in these areas to highlight us with their knowledge.
