The Flags of the Geneva Human Rights Platform Fly on the Mont-Blanc Bridge

2 June 2020

From today until Sunday 7 June, flags with the Geneva Human Rights Platform (GHRP) logo will be flying on the Mont-Blanc Bridge.

This should have coincided with the GHRP annual conference – an annual event open to all human rights actors in and outside Geneva that addresses current issues and challenges related to the work of Geneva-based human rights mechanisms. However, due to the COVID-19 situation, we postponed the conference to 15 October 2020.

‘As the space on the bridge was already booked in October, we decided to keep this slot to raise awareness about the platform in Geneva and beyond. This is also the occasion to announce the new date of the 2020 annual conference that will discuss the connectivity between the Geneva-based human rights system and regional human rights mechanisms’ explains Felix Kirchmeier, Executive Director of the Geneva Human Rights Platform.

‘We also want to show that our work continues, even in alternative online forms’ he adds.
