In the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) 70th Year we speak to Australian Capital Territory Human Rights Commissioner Dr Helen Watchirs on the importance of human rights defenders and how the UDHR can influence national legislation.
As part of the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, students from Gooloogong Public School located in rural New South Wales in Australia, learnt about human rights and then put together this video on what they learned and why they thought human rights are important. The project is part of our overall campaign to talk about human rights in rural Australia. More student videos and audio interviews to come.
