Living library Living library

The Living Library became part of the Council of Europe’s programme in 2003 and the driving force behind its inclusion was the realisation that human rights cannot be defended and promoted by legal texts alone. The Living Library is an equalities tool that seeks to challenge prejudice and discrimination. The EYCB regularly organises Living Library events.
