Human Rights Day is an essential occasion for the whole of humankind, as on this day in 1948 that the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) which is one of the UN’s major achievements as well as the first enunciation of human rights across the world. Adopted on 10th December 1948, the Declaration stipulates universal values and a shared standard of achievement for everyone in every country.
The President of India Mrs Draupadi Murmu noted in the official celebration address that it is the beginning of the worldwide, year-long celebrations of the 75 years of the UDHR. She said that over the past few years, the world has suffered from a high number of natural disasters caused by unusual weather patterns. Climate change is knocking on the doors. People in poorer nations will pay a heavier price for the degradation of our environment. We must consider the environmental dimension of justice now.
