Human Rights

The values underlying the Human Rights are very important to Humanism. The first directors of UNESCO (Julian Huxley), FAO (John Boyd Orr) and WHO (G. Brock Chisholm) were all prominent Humanists. Many Humanist principles have already found expression in international human rights conventions; Humanists have always supported the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Today many humanists around the world strive for the human rights, for instance for women rights, against child labour, etc. Also young humanists do so. It is for IHEYO one of our aims to work for the betterment of the human condition and human rights.
