15th Annual International Human Rights Summit, 2018
5 Jul 2018 -  The Opening Session on the first day of the Summit will include high level diplomats and officials who greet the Youth Delegates from across the world and encourage them to become advocates for peace and equality.

The 15th annual International Human Rights Summit is an open event organized by Youth for Human Rights International in collaboration with Permanent Missions to the United Nations and leading NGOs. This year’s Summit will commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), its historic impact on the world and what we need to do now to get it further implemented across all nations.

The key feature of the annual International Human Rights Summit are advocates who are using education about UDHRas the tool to improve the state of human rights, resolve conflicts, foster gender equality and address other issues such as human trafficking. Youth are joined by officials and advocates from around the world who work for equality and justice through human rights education.
