Human Rights Day is held annually on December 10th to mark the day, back in 1948, that the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (or UDHR) – which this year fell on Sunday.
It also saw a year-long campaign launched that will lead up to the 75th anniversary of the adoption of the UDHR by the United Nations, who stated that: “As the world faces challenges new and ongoing – pandemics, conflicts, exploding inequalities, morally bankrupt global financial system, racism, climate change – the values, and rights enshrined in the UDHR provide guideposts for our collective actions that do not leave anyone behind.
“The year-long campaign seeks to shift the needle of understanding and action towards greater knowledge of the universality of the UDHR and the activism associated with it.”
You can find out more about the year-long campaign, including materials and key messages, to help discuss the campaign and its message with pupils in your school.
