Human Rights Day, recognized annually on December 10th commemorates the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. On Monday, we celebrated the 70th birthday of the document by examining the preamble and discussing the progress and transgressions we’ve made since the document was ratified.

Our mission at GCE is rooted in the United Nationa Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and human rights are at the heart of the SDGs. Human Rights are driven by progress on all SDGs, and the SDGs are driven by advancements on human rights. We work to provide a platform for our students to become agents of progress.
