Celebrating Human Rights! 0 Reply

Human Rights Day

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a milestone document in the history of human rights. Drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the Declaration was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948 as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations. The Universal Declaration – the most translated document in the world, available in more than 500 languages – is as relevant today as it was on the day that it was adopted.

Nowadays, our societies face many challenges with regard to the implementation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, said that “cooperation between all actors, through multilateral institutions, can solve the complex challenges that face the world, and that by working to uphold human rights, … can ensure more just and respectful societies, living together in sustainable development and security”

In the framework of its 70 anniversary, Dialogue Café Association and its network members wish to promote, engage and reflect on the UDHR by organising a global session. A session aimed at raising awareness of what the UDHR means in everyday life, giving the floor to Human Right activists to know more about their commitment and finally, reflecting how each of us can stand up for human rights.

Activists, Human Rights and civil society organisations, youth leaders and workers, volunteers and general public based in cities of Belgrade, Évora, Lisbon and Rio de Janeiro will participate in this discussion and share their views, experiences and ideas on how taking action and standing up for Human Rights.

Dialogue Cafés participating in this debate are: Belgrade, Evora, Lisbon, Novi Pazar, and Rio de Janeiro!
