Human Rights Day: "Celebrate Human Rights", launch of a social media campaign - Press Conference
01 December 2011
The focus of this year's Human Rights Day
is the "Celebrate Human Rights" social media campaign, an initiative of the UN Human Rights Office in conjunction with the UN Department of Public Information. The campaign, both serious and fun, centres around the premise that we all share a common birthday, Human Rights Day, 10 December, when we celebrate the creation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay introduced the social media campaign for Human Rights Day, 10 December. Tony Wright, Chairman of Lowe and Partners, the global advertising agency that provided the creative concept for the campaign attended the event.
