Take a closer look at some of the events and stories taking place across the world to stand up for human rights.


Recover Better: The Quiz on COVID-19 and Human Rights

Kahoot, a popular online education platform, has joined forces with the UN Human Rights Office to create a special learning game, entitled “Recover Better: The Quiz on COVID-19 and Human Rights.”

Available in English, French and Spanish, the Quiz tests your knowledge of how Covid-19 has affected human rights, and how we can "recover better" from the pandemic, which is the theme of this year's Human Rights Day. Kahoot will prominently promote the Quiz to its large communities of teachers and students worldwide.

How has COVID-19 affected human rights, from modern-day slavery to climate change, the right to health, or the vaccine distribution? How will this impact the world's efforts to recover better? Test your knowledge now! And check explanations of the answers here.
