August 27, 28, 30 youth from different countries in Europe will meet at Camelot Castle to learn how to promote human rights and respect for each other through the arts.

Youth for Human Rights International is this year having their European summit at Camelot Castle, Tintagel. It will be opened on Saturday, August 27 at 10 a.m. by Mr. Daniel Rogersen, Member Parliament for Cornwall; John Mappin, owner of Camelot Castle Hotel; Revd Janet Kenyon Laveau, representative of the Church of Scientology International and Mary Shuttleworth, Director of Youth for Human Rights International, Mejindar Pal Kaur of United Sikhs, Nurdin Husin from the World Assembly of Muslim Youth, and Father Brian Storey of St Paul’s Church, Tintagel and representatives from the Pagan Federation.

Cornwall, as one of the most beautiful areas in UK, was chosen this year as the site for this year's Youth for Human Rights International Arts Festival. Last year the conference was held in New York in the UNICEF house at the United Nations and was opened by, amongst others, the Deputy Director for the Human Rights Commission of the United Nation.

"The London bombings have made such a European conference on human rights more urgent than to highlight the necessity of having youth taught about the human rights we are all born with and how to ensure that all people's rights are protected", says Mary Shuttleworth, Director of Youth for Human Rights International.

There will be youth delegates from many different countries represented at this conference. Besides the UK, there will be delegates from France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Hungary, Sweden, Switzerland and others. They were chosen on the basis of art work that they submitted or their work in the field of human rights.

The conference is co-sponsored by the Church of Scientology, United Sikhs, World Assembly of Muslim Youth and Association of British Muslims. It became clear for the representatives of the different religious communities involved that educating youth of all different faiths and all ethnic backgrounds in the field of human rights can prevent future extremism and conflict.

Press and media representatives should arrive at Camelot Castle at 9:45 a.m.
