EXHIBITION: MY HUMAN RIGHTS HERO
70 years of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Seventy years ago, on the 10th of December, 1948, the thirty most basic human rights and fundamental freedoms were written and adopted by the international community in what can be considered as one of the most important documents of the 20th century, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
PEOPLE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD
Worldwide, in the Netherlands and in The Hague, countless people are committed to achieving human rights for as many people as possible – by helping others to realise their rights, by standing up against violations, by calling perpetrators to account, and taking action for a better world.
Who are these people? What are they doing? And how did they get inspired and stay inspired? We asked these questions to seven individuals that are promoting human rights in their communities. Each from different backgrounds and walks of life, but all with a special connection to The Hague.
Together with artist Julia Brants and photographer Gregor Servais Fotografie, their answers are represented in an interactive exhibition aimed to inspire and inform you about how you can contribute to human rights. The title: My Human Rights Hero.
