Shine Your Light for Human Rights

A series of 14 events across seven time zones spotlighting the centrality of rights to the daily lives of people everywhere.


Shine your light for the future we all want

13 December 2018, Geneva

UDHR Article 25 recognises the rights of children.

To be headlined by the High Commissioner, this uniquely “inter-generational” event, will be held in the HRC chamber, and take the form of a discussion with and for children to spotlight what human rights means for them today and in their future. We will also celebrate to the part that children play as human rights defenders.

  • 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.
