WikiForHumanRights 2024 in South Sudan

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

#WikiForHumanRights campaign is to make sure that everyone has access to neutral, fact-based, and current information for a sustainable future that centers human rights, including topics like the Right to a Healthy Environment and other human rights.

To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,Wikimedia Community User Group Uganda will be creating knowledge that documents: how can human rights knowledge help us create a sustainable future? To advocate for your rights, you need to know your rights, and to advocate for a future that respects those rights, the public needs knowledge about the solutions for the issues at the center of each human rights challenge. The role of Wikipedia has never mattered more than now. Everyone everywhere needs access to information about human rights and how we create a sustainable future.

The campaign focuses on regional writing contests and community events that will highlight the issues that matter most for your context: some languages and contexts will focus on the same theme as previous years, such as the Right to a Healthy Environment, while others will expand to look at other sustainability topics in their local context.

Topics in focus:[edit]

For 2024, we are focusing on expanding topics important to human rights and Sustainable development Goals (SDGs) in a sustainable future. We are aligning with SDGs 6, 7, 11, 12, 13, 15, and 16.
