With a goal of supporting people to connect and expand cities that protect, promote and fulfil human rights, the online platform for the Human Rights Cities Network goes live to the public today.
Marking the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, The Human Rights Cities Network promotes the development of human rights in Europe and beyond. “Our vision to help make human rights a reality for every citizen, in every city,” said the founder and MD of the Human Rights Cities Network, Frédérique Hanotier.
The network will be formally launched during the International Conference “Cities for Rights”, in Barcelona, on the 11 December 2018.
The Human Rights Cities Network applies knowledge on what constitutes a human rights city and how existing cities can be advanced. The network promotes the advantages of becoming a human rights city, and supports new members in many ways. “Using human rights as a foundation, we focus on leaving no one behind,” said Hanotier, “on putting individual rights at the centre of public policies; and of empowering cities to make urban settings a place of equal opportunity for all. Combined, we help people can live in peace and dignity.”
