This year’s commemoration of Human Rights Day marks the beginning of a year-long celebration of seven decades since the adoption of one of the world’s most profound and far-reaching international agreements. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights establishes the equality and dignity of every human being and stipulates that every government has a core duty to enable all people to enjoy all their inalienable rights and freedoms.
The Red Cross of Serbia and the UN agencies in Serbia partnered up to jointly commemorate the International Volunteer Day under the global theme Volunteers Act First. Here. Everywhere. The event aimed at recognizing contribution of volunteers as first responders in times of crisis.
The voices of children were clearly heard in the Parliament of the Republic of Serbia today, as part of the World Children's Day celebrations. Children took over the Parliament and presented the conclusions from a participatory process, in which children, including particularly vulnerable children, expressed their opinions about how they perceive the problem of violence and how to prevent it.
