The Universal Declaration of Human Rights has celebrated its 70th anniversary, but few people are aware of its radical implications for achieving a better world.
In this Zoom presentation and Q+A hosted by Share The World's Resources (STWR), we will discuss the contemporary relevance of the United Nations founding document of human rights.
The talk will focus on the reality of extreme poverty across the world, and the need for human rights to be protected by the rule of law within every nation - particularly Article 25 of the Universal Declaration, which proclaims the right of everyone to an adequate standard of living.
We aim to stimulate discussion about the importance of fulfilling economic and social rights in the UK and across the world. Participants are invited to further engage with these issues, and to join a global movement that calls on governments to end poverty as an overriding priority.
Time: 7-8pm on Sunday 10th January
