Deadline – April 8, 2019.
Youth for Human Rights Nepal will be holding its 7th Annual Asia Human Rights Summit on April 19 & 20, 2019 at Kathmandu, Nepal. We are calling on young people to be Youth Delegates representing their countries from South Asia. There is no boundary for any other countries who like to participate as an observer, as well as inviting attendees from all walks of life who are passionate about the importance of human rights education.
A population ignorant of its rights cannot demand or defend them. Yet few in the world today know even two or three of their 30 rights as expressed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).
Join officials and advocates from around the world who work for equality and justice through human rights education. Hear from youth and adult human rights champions. Collaborate with other passionate young men and women to make human rights a global reality.
The Conference will feature the 2019 Human Rights Hero Awards, acknowledging those whose courage and determination has raised the bar on human rights in their respective nations and communities.
