"So, as we approach the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we now have the opportunity to enforce the Declaration’s principles ensuring that every single woman and every single child enjoys the rights of all human beings”
“But it can be more. It can also be a moment for new visions and actions rooted in the best traditions of our past.”
The Elders and partners launched the Every Human Has Rights campaign in Cape Town on 10 December 2007 to celebrate the beginning of the 60th anniversary year of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). The campaign aimed to encourage and empower global citizens to protect the UDHR, the first-ever comprehensive agreement on human rights among nations.
