Human Rights
  • All human beings, have similar basic needs (physiological & safety needs): nutritious food, healthcare, shelter, education, protection from harm and more.
  • Needs are different to wants. Wants are not necessary for a person to survive, grow and develop. 
  • Everyone of us has the right to have these needs fulfilled.  These rights are called human rights.  
  • Human rights are the basic freedoms and protections that belong
    to every single one of us. They are based on principles of dignity,  equality and mutual respect – regardless of age, nationality, gender, race, beliefs and personal orientations. 


Slide 15 - Slide

Human Rights
  • universal – they belong to all of us; everybody in the world.
  • inalienable – they cannot be taken away from us. 
  • indivisible and interdependent
they are all of equal importance and are interrelated.

Slide 16 - Slide

Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR)
  • The UDHR was drawn up by the United Nations in the years
    immediately following World War II. 
  • Every country in the world has agreed  that they are bound by the general principles expressed within the 30 articles
    of this document. 

Slide 17 - Slide

Human Rights: Task
Read the 30 articles of UDHR and choose the 5 rights that you think are the most important and choose the 5 rights that you think are least important.

Explain why you think these rights are most/least important.
Think about:
How will the human rights benefit your / our lives?
What would happen if you / we didn't have them?

Slide 18 - Slide

  • In reality you don’t ever have to choose your human rights.
  • Although they can sometimes be restricted, human rights can never be taken away from you.
  • Every human right is important!
