It’s relevant to all of us, every day; and human rights are at the heart of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Human Rights Day is the 10th December every year and in 2019, the theme is Youth Standing Up for Human Rights.
Thirty years ago, in 1989, the Convention on the Rights of the Child was created. This was a promise by the leaders of our world to protect and realise the rights of children around the world by adopting an international legal framework. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child was born.
Human Rights Day itself is observed every year on December 10th. It began in 1948, after the tumultuous and horrendous terrors and human rights violations of the second world war, as well as the awful wars before that. The United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR); this seminal Declaration declared the intent of our world’s leaders to uphold the unassailable human rights deserved and had by all – regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.
The document itself is the most translated document in the world, and is currently available in more than 500 languages.
