Awareness-raising campaign “The Universal Declaration of Human Rights in illustrations”

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is the first document

that laid the foundation for the system of Human Rights protection.

On December 10, 2009 on 61st anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adoption we start a long-term awareness-raising campaign “The Universal Declaration of Human Rights in illustrations”.

We hope that this campaign will attract attention of children and adults to the values of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: Human Rights and Human Dignity, Freedom, Non-violence and peace-making, tolerance and inter-cultural dialogue, as well as contemporary problems of Human Rights violation, the aspects of their observation and protection.

We have been maturing the idea to illustrate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in informal way to make its a little bit closer and clear for a long time. It's the time!

On the web-site of the awareness-raising campaign “The Universal Declaration of Human Rights in illustrations” one can find contemporary illustrations for the articles of the Declaration and educational materials.

How it can be used:

  • Print out and distribute materials (poster A2 and cards 10x15) in schools, universities, on the events devoted to Human Rights, etc;

  • Spread information about the campaign through the Internet blogs, social networks and other web-sites;

  • Participate in working out new materials or suggest your own ideas/methods of informal civil education and human rights enlightenment.

That is just the beginning!

During the campaign we plan to issue a booklet with illustrations, series of bookmarkers for study books, series of cards, animated presentations with extracts from the Declaration, shoot a trailer showing the main articles and translate materials in English.

You can participate in any of our undertakings! We are always open for the new ideas!

The awareness-raising campaign ‘the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in illustrations’ is a part of the big project to promote the Universal Declaration carried out by the international Youth Human Rights Movement. Other parts of the project are ‘Museum of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights’ and Awareness-raising action ‘Youth for Human Rights – Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948-2008)’. More information will be available soon on the web-site.
