Stand up 4 Human Rights!

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights Turns 70

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone document, which underpins all international human rights law and inspires us to continue to work to ensure all people can gain freedom, equality and dignity.

And in December 2018, the UDHR turns 70.

The UN Human Rights Office kicks off the celebration of Declaration with the launch of website that gives access to information about the UDHR and actions and events at the click of a mouse. It also gives an opportunity to take action.

You can join our campaign that will last one year (December 2017 - December 2018), and stand up for human rights.

Human rights are everyone's rights. Help spread the word, in your own language.


For example, you may record yourself reading one of the 30 articles of the Declaration in any of the 135 languages currently available on this site and share your video with your friends. Watch the video bellow for details.
