ABOUT THE REFUGEE CHALLENGE

It has been 70 years since the creation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on 10 December 1948. On that day, the United Nations General Assembly declared that that, ‘every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance.’

 

The interactive experience provided by the Refugee Challenge is a powerful and effective way for students to learn about human rights and their relevance for all people. The Refugee Challenge will help students ‘make sense of the world today’ and become ‘active and informed citizens.’
