The 10th annual Youth for Human Rights International Human Rights Summit 2013 took place in Brussels, Belgium from September 6 to 8. Youth from around the world gathered at the event to share, encourage and inspire global peace and tolerance. The purpose of the summit was to teach the youth about human rights, especially the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), and inspire them to become advocates for tolerance and peace. This year, 30 youth delegates from as many countries and a large number of youth ambassadors from around the world took part in the summit.
I represented Bangladesh at the grand summit and held a series of meetings with Dr. Mary Shuttleworth, President, Youth for Human Rights International, and other representatives of UN. On the second day of the summit, I delivered a speech on ‘Human Rights Education’. In the speech, I stressed the acceleration of global human rights movement and explained the importance of UDHR in motivating millions of people around the world to respect human rights.
All the delegates vowed to make the world better through human rights movement, and pledged to realise their goals.
