60 young adults involved in civil society projects from all five continents are in Paris for the annual LabCitoyen (citizen's laboratory). Organised by the Institut Français, the theme this year is education and human rights. Four female participants from Nigeria, Egypt and New Zealand talk to RFI about their work in human rights back home and what they'll be taking away from their trip to France.

Labcitoyen gets youngsters involved in a range of French initiatives in the field of human rights and promotes the French language as a tool for both discussion and action.
