🎉 Happy #InternationalHumanRightsDay!

On December 10th of 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Human rights are at the heart of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as in the absence of human dignity we cannot hope to drive sustainable development.
