Theme
Sustainable Development and Human Rights: A Better Future For All




We live on one planet, connected in a delicate, intricate web of ecological, social, economic and cultural relationships that shape our lives. If we are to achieve sustainable development, we will need to display greater responsibility - for the ecosystems on which all life depends, for each other as a single human community, and for the generations that will follow our own, living tomorrow with the consequences of the decisions we take today.

Student Conference on Human Rights at the United Nations

The United Nations Department of Public Information (UNDPI) hosted its 5th annual Student Conference on Human Rights on Friday, December 6, 2002. The theme this year was Sustainable Development and Human Rights: A Better Future For All."

Selected students from Canada, Domincan Republic, Mexico and the United States met at the United Nations as leaders in the 5th Annual Student
Conference on Human Rights. They helped facilitate the interaction of young people in an all day international videoconference as they discussed
their action plans and developed a youth declaration on our focus area of Sustainable Development and Human Rights.

Students can share their ideas on this year's theme by participating in our interactive forums.
