Swansea: A Human Rights City
In Swansea our aim is to become a Human Rights City and recognise that this means embracing a vision of vibrant, diverse, fair and safe communities built on the foundations of universal human rights.
Human rights are the basic rights and freedoms that belong to every person in the world, from birth until death. They apply regardless of where you are from, what you believe or how you choose to live your life.
They can never be taken away, although they can sometimes be restricted - for example if a person breaks the law, or in the interests of national security.
These basic rights are based on shared values like dignity, fairness, equality, respect and independence.
Involving people in becoming a Human Rights City and what it means for Swansea is key to making a real difference. This survey will help us understand what people already know about Human Rights and what should be the priorities for Human Rights in Swansea.
