Learning  about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is an interesting way to approach the big topic of Human Rights. In some countries (like Norway, we learned) kids know about this document since they are very young., but in many others (like Colombia) it is not common at all to be acquainted with it before college.

We believe it is important and very interesting to carefully read and discuss this text. If you are planning an activity about this you might need a copy of the UDHR, below you will find two printable versions of it:

(If you use the abbreviated version, make sure you clarify that it is not the official text).

 

You can find useful information for your activities in the UN’s webpage for the UDHR.
