Whats on at the UN? A giant teepee & a colouring competition

UN Roundup// Mid Morning Mix // Politics// Art & Culture // By Katt Cullen // July 9, 2018

This week Daniel Johnson from the UN takes us through some of the resolutions passed on the last Human Rights Council, which ended on Friday.

Also, keep the kids busy with a colouring competition, illustrating Human Rights.


At the last Human Rights Council, which ended last Friday, there were 20 resolutions passed in total. UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein had a strong message in his final address to the Council. 


Kids 4 Human Rights Drawing Contest submission Form

There's a drawing competition to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declrartion of Human Rights. The competition is aimed at 10-14 year-olds (but open to all), asking children the question "What do human rights mean to you?"

There are three main themes you can choose for your artwork to depict:

  • - Theme 1: the human right that matters the most to you.
  • - Theme 2: someone you admire for their efforts in defending or promoting human rights.
  • - Theme 3: How you can defend or promote human rights

Listen in to the interview, podcasted above, for some of Daniel's ideas and examples.

Drawings can be submitted electronically via the website or emailed to kids4humanrights[at]gabarron.org indicating your name, age and address including country. The deadline for submitting your drawing is 31 October 2018. Finalists will be asked to send their original drawing, by post, to the Gabarron Foundation.
