    Our mission is to draft an

    International Bill of Rights that will

    be enforceable in the courts of all

    countries by the year 2048, the

    100th anniversary of the Universal

    Declaration of Human Rights

    The 2048 website provides a wealth

    of videos, as well as regional and

    international documents for teachers

    to incorporate into their classes, and

    for students to review and reference.

    Teachers can also empower students

    to think like leaders and actually sign

    the International Bill of Rights

    document!

    The website also provides acurriculum for Human Rights Day,

    celebrated internationally each year

    on December 10th in recognition of

    the adoption by the General Assembly

    of the Universal Declaration of Human

    Rights on December 10th, 1948. The

    curriculum includes videos,

    documents, and a lesson plan for

    teachers to use so that, on the same

    day, students in many countries learn

    about rights they all share.

    A collection of human rights treaties

    that have been signed by each

    country

    A list of all of human rights centers

    and other academic institutions for

    human rights

    The core of the 2048 Project is its

    website: www.2048.berkeley.edu.

    The 2048 Project is designed to focus

    and facilitate drafting an

    International Bill of Rights by

    providing a process for many people

    and organizations internationally to

    work together. This process is called

    drafting through dialogue. 2048

    also sponsors regional and

    international conferences to bring

    people together to work on anInternational Bill of Rights.

    make comments on the International

    Bill of Rights document. The website is

    compiling the following information for

    every country:

    Its important to change light-bulbs, but
