On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations. After the adoption of this historic act the Assembly called upon all Member countries to publicize the text of the Declaration principally in schools and other educational institutions irrelevant of the political status of countries or territories. This was because the Declaration contained several articles of special interest to youth.
The Declaration of Human Rights which deals with family life, work, health, and education contains certain Articles that have special relevance to youth. These Articles are as follows:
Everyone has the right to rest and leisure, including reasonable limitation of working hours and periodic holidays with pay.
