The Chief Executives Board considered a proposal for an initiative, under the leadership of the Secretary-General, for a year-long United Nations system-wide human rights advocacy campaign to commemorate the sixtieth anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights requested that United Nations organizations situate their own work within the scope of the Declaration and offered the assistance of her office to CEB members in developing their own celebrations and commemorations over the year, to demonstrate that the United Nations was embracing a human rights vision. The initiative was warmly welcomed by the Board.
