Human Rights Youth Challenge

22 November, 2021

The 5th Human Rights Youth Challenge was launched on World Toilet Day, 19 November. The initiative is organized by the Special Rapporteur on the human rights to safe drinking water and sanitation.

Young people across the world (aged between 19 and 24) are being asked to produce a video or any other digital content on “the human rights to water and sanitation of peoples living close to the nature”, such as indigenous peoples, peasants, farmers, fishers, hunters and gatherers, livestock rearers, and traders.

The aim of the challenge is to highlight how people living close to nature enjoy their human rights to water and sanitation, through the lens of youth.

The submission deadline is 15 February 2022 midnight (CET) and can be in any language, with subtitles in English, French or Spanish. Full details are found here.
