藉由宣導聯合國所訂定的「世界人權宣言」,讓青少年、甚至一般民眾瞭解他們所擁有的基本權利,使社會各層面能夠將這30條基本權利落實在生活中,建立一個民主、自由、理性的社會。這個部份,將透過中華國際人權促進會的設立,來與國際青少年人權協會(Youth for Human Rights International)的相關活動接軌,目標是要求落實世界人權宣言,使人權在全球實現。




27,944 萬公里



Youth for Human Rights World Educational Tour 2012, in honor of the United Nations Literacy Decade (2003-2012), circled the globe 27,944 miles to countries including Cameroon, Ethiopia, Japan, Liberia, Mexico, Taiwan, Togo and the USA. 

The purpose of YHRI is to teach youth about human rights, specifically the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), and inspire them to become advocates for tolerance and peace. The UDHR was signed into existence in 1948 and the United Nations General Assembly called upon all member countries "to cause it to be disseminated, displayed, read and expounded principally in schools and other educational institutions, without distinction based on the political status of countries or territories." Unfortunately, in more than six decades, very few people have heard about this important document or know what their human rights and responsibilities are. 
Mary Shuttleworth, Ed.D., founder and president of YHRI, has led the annual global outreach project circling the globe each year since 2004, visiting approximately 80 countries and meeting with youth, educators, community leaders, and legislators as well as various dignitaries, including kings, heads of government and officials of the United Nations and Commonwealth of Nations to promote the implementation of Human Rights Education.
Scouts in Coyoacan learned that rights and responsibilities go hand-in-hand. The red carpet rolled out at the Cinepolis Plaza Carso, Mexico City, and Paulina Gaitan, followed by several other celebrities, officials, students and the media rolled in!
