ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN
FOR UNIVERSAL HUMAN RESPONSIBILITIES
"It always seems impossible, until it's done"
A Distinct Identity
WHO WE ARE
We are an alliance of global citizens from all around the world that are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all. We are a small growing community looking for continuous improvement. Accepting universal human responsibilities is a rebellion of conscience from within, one which can release and channel unlimited amounts of energy, resources and action. For 70 years, the universal declaration of human rights helped to align citizens and leaders in the fight against oppression. It is time to add a companion universal declaration of human responsibilities so that together, they can form a cornerstone of a new societal contract for the world.
The Campaign for Universal Human Responsibilities
Our aim in the Campaign is to open a doorway to transformational change that can cascade across all levels and sectors of society and in all the countries and cultures of the globe. Our three goals are:
Define Universal Human Responsibilities: Legitimise the dialogue with the highest levels of professionalism and spread it worldwide to define universal human responsibilities as part of international law as a complement to universal human rights.
Upgrade Civic Systems: Design universal human responsibilities and rights as a cornerstone of a 21st century modular architecture of self-governance that includes key building blocks of civic systems needed to upgrade their capacity to achieve global goals.
Increase Rates of Change: Collaborate with a wide range of partners to develop practices, incentives and programmes that use upgraded civic systems and intensified civic engagement to increase our rate of change in achieving global sustainable development goals.
Working Towards a Better Tomorrow
Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. The Campaign for Universal Human Responsibility emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the community, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. It all started in May 2019, at the OECD Forum, where 70 citizens participated in an open workshop to draft a first version of a universal declaration of human responsibilities. From this moment on, a group of volunteers was formed to bring this dialogue to the world in a way which can make a lasting difference.
WHAT WE DO
Making a Difference
The Campaign for Universal Human Responsibility is in the business of changing and shaping lives. The work we do at our Non-Profit Organization is aimed at providing a holistic approach to solving some of our society’s biggest challenges. CUHR is a community fighting to grow the world we want and to avoid the one we fear, one child, one citizen at a time. To be your best self be a good citizen; to be our best selves become citizens of the world.
WORKSHOPS AND DISCUSSIONS
Raising Our Game
Come join us in a discussion about a new global campaign on universal human responsibility. For 75 years, the world has had a universal declaration of human rights, but no agreed upon definition of universal human responsibilities. It is time to create one and your participation is of the utmost importance for us to achieve that goal.
THE DECLARATION OF UNIVERSAL HUMAN RESPONSIBILITIES
Building a Societal Contract for the World
Universal human responsibilities and rights are the cornerstone of a transformative societal contract binding citizens together in a way that is legitimate, deeply felt, goal oriented and enabled by sustainable civic capacity. It is time to add a companion universal declaration of human responsibilities so that together, they can form a cornerstone of a new societal contract for the world. This is a living document and thus a constant work in progress. You can download our drafts in multiple languages by clicking in Read more.

Working together as global citizens
The Campaign is dedicated to stepping up our efforts to ensure a truly diverse community. In our team we have members of all around the world. We believe that only by making a diverse, accesible and legitimate campaign we will have a Declaration that liberates and channels civic energy through a thriving global community.
