Today marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on Dec. 10, 1948. It was an attempt to codify the basic rights that all human beings should enjoy without regard to race, color, gender, nationality or any other basis. Eleanor Roosevelt, who chaired the drafting committee, called it “a Magna Carta” for the human race.
In a nod to this anniversary, we will be featuring a 10-day selection of pieces written by our board members about what the Universal Declaration of Human Rights means to them.
The first was penned by David Harris.
The United Nations Member States adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals in 2015 because they understood that it would not be possible to build a peaceful world if steps were not taken to achieve economic and social development for all people everywhere, and ensure that their rights were protected. The Sustainable Goals cover a broad range of issues, including poverty, hunger, health, education, climate change, gender equality, water, sanitation, energy, environment and social justice.
Sustainable Development Goal 16 “Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions” calls for promoting peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, providing access to justice for all and building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.
A peaceful society is one where there is justice and equality for everyone. Peace will enable a sustainable environment to take shape and a sustainable environment will help promote peace.
