Young people in partnership with @Theirworld demanded action on the #GlobalEducationCrisis and world leaders have listened. #IFFEd will unlock billions for children globally and help deliver a world where every child has a place in school. #LetMeLearn

Theirworld, Your Walk: Thank you! –

Nous venons de signer cette lettre ouverte pour demander aux chefs d’Etat et de gouvernement de faire de l’école gratuite pour tous les enfants un droit humain universel.

Human rights values

Human rights have intrinsic values but also instrumental values in terms of driving development: the realisation of rights directly increases human development, which builds capacity (such as knowledge or good health) that in turn enables people to better claim other rights.*

Recognition and implementation of universal human rights can be seen both as a goal and a driver of human development.**

Human rights have intrinsic value, and achieving them is seen as an objective in its own right. But human rights are also a critical factor for the long-term sustainability of development.***
