Dear friends of the DHR,
This autumn, the Association of Friends of the Universal Declaration of Humankind Rights continues to make progress. On the agenda: a partnership with UCLG, a DHR webinar and new projects…
The partnership with UCLG continues to progress!
The Association of Friends of the DHR has for some months now established a partnership with United Cities and Local Governments World Organisation. The organisation recently voted the Declaration as one of its strategic priorities from now on!
As such, the Association of the DHR has been invited to participate in important events organised by UCLG. Ms. Lepage spoke at the UCLG World Council’s Special High-Level Session on Ecological Transition, which took place on 12 November.

We warmly thank UCLG for its commitment to carrying the values of the Declaration!
A DHR webinar on Human Rights Day!
On the occasion of the commemoration of the adoption of the Declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations General Assembly on 10 December, the Association of the DHR is planning to organise a webinar, in partnership with Africa21, in order to show its relevance and to be more widely known!
The list of speakers will be communicated shortly.
First contact with Mr Baskut Tuncak!
During the preparation of a webinar, Mrs Lepage, President of the Association, met Mr Baskut Tuncak, former United Nations Special Rapporteur for Human Rights. Specialised in the impact of the management and disposal of hazardous substances and waste on Human Rights, this first contact is a step towards a possible new ambassador for the Declaration!
