Crowdsourcing Mornings: The Universal Declaration Of Human Rights: Redesigned

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at:

Since the creation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948, no document has more clearly outlined the inherent rights and freedoms guaranteed to every human being. It is the most important document in human rights history. Period.  Despite it’s unparalleled significance, we at ARTE noticed that many young people across the United States feel disconnected from it and don’t see it’s relevance in their lives. We are here to change that but we can’t do it alone.  To better engage youth on human rights, we redesigned the UDHR to make it readable, accessible and dynamic. With all that work behind us, it was time to get this into the hands of young people in schools and jails across the country.

We knew we couldn’t do it alone – so we teamed up with NYC brand agency, ThoughtMatter(check out their re-designed Constitution). After a few drafts, we knew we had something special. Our re-designed UDHR elevates the importance message of universal human rights. It also:

  • can travel with you as a intimate pocket-sized zine
  • can fold out into a poster you can hang up, take down and re-fold again!

Our design is complete and prototyped, but we need your help to get this document out into the world. Your dollars will go toward our first round of printing of 4,000 copies which will be the basis for our programming in future months.

As of April 15th, this project has raised $3,500 of their $5,000 goal. This project has 16 days left to raise the $5,000 or it will not be funded. For a pledge of $20, you will get a set of stickers.  For a pledge of $50, you will get one Universal Declaration of Human Rights booklet.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
