York: City of Human Rights
Published on 29 Nov 2019
Ever heard of a Human Rights City? They’re dotted around Europe and there’s even more across the world. But one is right here in the UK.
York became the UK’s first Human Rights City in April 2017. That means it seeks to use human rights as the backbone for its policies and rules. We went to York to find out a little more about what that means for the city, and how other places across the UK might follow in York’s footsteps.
EachOther is a UK-focused charity that uses independent journalism, story-telling and film-making to put the human into human rights. The digital content we produce is grounded in the lived experience of ordinary people affected by human rights issues. We involve them in the process of developing their stories, rather than talking for or over them. Theirs are the voices we platform and amplify to our lay audience of over a million viewers each year. In this way, we hope to grow public support for human rights here in the UK.
