IJWC joins International Human Rights Day

International Junior Writers Club joins the 2020 International Human Rights Day by hosting an international student discussion about using any applicable class lessons to promote human rights and the global goal of reduced inequalities. This activity will run until the end of December. Any high school students approved by schools or parents can participate.

Human Rights Day is observed every 10th of December each year. This year's theme is: "Recover Better - Stand Up for Human Rights." This year’s celebration relates to the COVID-19 pandemic and focuses on the need to build back better by ensuring human rights are central to recovery efforts. We can reach our common global goals only if we create equal opportunities for all, address the failures exposed and exploited by COVID-19, and apply human rights standards to tackle entrenched, systematic, and intergenerational inequalities, exclusion, and discrimination.
