In this important moment of history, when challenges of Human Rights keep arising day after day, a key tool for peace keeps being extremely unknown to general population and even civil servants from member states, impeding in this way its logical application even in the daily day life.
And in answering the call to action of the National Institutions, Regional Mechanisms and Civil Society Section department of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, we have gathered a group of organizations committed to promote the rights in this declaration, engging audiences, mobilizing people to defend and protect these rights, but also reflecting on the daily progresses and challenges.
Our meeting intends to gather grass roots movements representatives from around the world, showing their good practices in making the UDHR broadly known in society, starting from the school, the neighborhood and public institutions. With this we want to give each participant a renewed purpose on making the UDHR known and also gaining more and different successful ways of making this happen. We will also open the event to public institutions that are willing to inform civil society on the different ways in which they can cooperate together for the noble cause of making Human Rights a closer reality.
