Shine Your Light for Human Rights

A series of 14 events across seven time zones spotlighting the centrality of rights to the daily lives of people everywhere.


Shine your light for the dignity of children

10 December 2018, Panama City

UDHR Article 25 recognises the specific rights of children and children, of course, are entitled to enjoyment of all rights.

In this unique event we will shine a light on the human rights of children with a particular emphasis on how child labour undermines the rights and dignity of children and we will celebrate the contribution of those who stand up for children.

  • I will respect your rights regardless of who you are. I will uphold your rights even when I disagree with you
  • When anyone’s human rights are denied, everyone's rights are undermined, so I will stand up
  • I will raise my voice. I will take action. I will use my rights to stand up for your rights.
