Thanks to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and States’ commitments to its principles, the dignity of millions has been uplifted, untold human suffering prevented and the foundations for a most just world have been laid. While its promise is yet to be fulfilled, the very fact that it has stood the test of time is testament to the enduring universality of its perennial values of equality, justice and human dignity. To highlight what the Universal Declaration means for people in their everyday lives, UN Human Rights had launched a year-long campaign on 10th December, Human Rights Day 2017 that culminated in the actual occasion of the Declaration’s 70th anniversary celebration on the same day next year.
The campaign had three core objectives: to promote, engage and reflect. Our aim is to engage a broad base of audiences the world over; to help promote understanding of how the Universal Declaration empowers us all; and encourage further reflection on the ways that each of us can stand up for rights, every day. The anniversary is a chance for the world to celebrate the gift of the Universal Declaration and to help reaffirm the enduring human rights principles and standards it has helped establish.
