What do human rights mean to you in 2023

In 2023, as we come to the conclusion of the project and to the 75th Anniversary of the UDHR, we will celebrate and amplify the voices of children and young people across the country. We are inviting young people to share and celebrate what the UDHR means to them, and to think about what work we all still need to do to guarantee universal rights to every human being. We’d love for you and your students to participate and share with us: What do Human Rights mean for you?

How can you get involved?

Whether it’s an installation in your foyer, a video on your TikTok channel, a workshop with a youth theatre group, a dedicated session with your local reading club, a collage with your class, we want to collect testimonies and amplify voices of young people, students, community groups and partners across the countries as they respond to what human rights mean to them in 2023.

If you want to be involved, we ask you to RSVP to this call out, and let us know how you plan to engage your audiences or local groups. We will collect testimonies from the 4 nations, and in the lead-up to the 10th December we will announce all the activity taking place with a dedicated Press Release, as well as sharing updates and amplifying voices on our social media channels.

You are welcome to take inspiration from the activities we ran over the past few years, such as Ai Wei Wei’s flag making pack, and from the schools Resource Packs available on our website, or engage in the way that is most meaningful to you and your autumn programme.
