Organize your own exhibition with 40 posters by renowned graphic designers

23 February 2018

Forty posters were designed in collaboration with our partner NGO Poster for Tomorrow on the occasion of the launch of the 70th Anniversary campaign of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Paris, on 10 December 2017.

Poster for Tomorrow organised a worldwide call for graphic contributions to depict #StandUp4HumanRights. In this series of posters, 40 renowned graphic designers from all over the world illustrated their perception of human rights.

From December 5th to January 4th 2018, 26 posters were selected to be displayed in Paris.

The UN Human Rights Office is now making available these posters so you can organize your own exhibition. See the 40 posters here (PDF). Should you be interested, please contact udhr70@ohchr.org.

  • I will respect your rights regardless of who you are. I will uphold your rights even when I disagree with you
  • When anyone’s human rights are denied, everyone's rights are undermined, so I will stand up
  • I will raise my voice. I will take action. I will use my rights to stand up for your rights.
