Ferienspiel 2018:
UN Children's Conference on Human Rights

Programme outline

Seventy years ago this year, UN Member States adopted a very important document: the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

To celebrate this anniversary, our 2018 Ferienspiel is all about human rights. Learn how countries work together at the UN by drafting your own 'Declaration of Human Rights'.

Then put words into action and try playing Human Rights Twister!

By the end of the programme, you'll go home with some new ideas about how anyone can Stand Up for Human Rights.
