The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone document in the history of human rights and was the starting point for concept and research of our project. The LCA 1s were the group which lead the project and all the research was carried out by this group. the concept was conceived with the QQI 3s back in 2020 and the majority of the group went onto LCA 1, where they continued to develop the concept and design. The 30 Universal Declaration of Human Rights Articles were explored, and images gathered for the Interactive Board Game.
