To mark the 30th anniversary of the Vienna World Conference on Human Rights, the Austrian Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights invite you to a series of events in Vienna’s MuseumsQuartier on 5 and 6 June. This series is open to visitors free of charge and without registration.
In cooperation with the United Nations in Vienna, the open-air “Human Rights Fair” provides a space for interested visitors to find out about the human rights engagement of (inter)national organisations based in Vienna: How can crime and human trafficking be effectively tackled? How does the peaceful use of nuclear technology preserve human rights? What is the connection between human rights and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? In addition, interactive hands-on activities contribute to a better understanding and knowledge of human rights. More information: https://www.bmeia.gv.at/en/
Videos by Michael Balgavy will also be projected onto the facade of the Leopold Museum on 5 and 6 June. On Tuesday evening at 9.45 pm, the videos can be seen in full length during the artistic intervention “Human Rights through the Eyes of Diversity”.
On 6 June, the symposium “Vienna World Conference 30 Years On: Our Rights – Our Future” featuring high-ranking guests from politics and the human rights field can be followed via livestream on the ministry’s website www.vienna30.at or in Vienna’s MuseumsQuartier.
