About Civilization Rights Day


Civilization rights are an invaluable resource belonging to all of humanity. They embody human ingenuity, creativity, and resilience, and serve as a source of pride, identity, and belonging. These rights take various forms, such as sacred sites, structures, monuments, statues, artifacts, jewelry, music, folklore, and pottery.

Sadly, civilization rights continue to be violated by past colonial powers refusing to repatriate stolen items, entities exploiting heritage for commercial gain, and cultural appropriation and falsification that mislead future generations.

Civilization Rights Day is an annual global event that honors, recognizes, and reaffirms the collective rights of nations, communities, indigenous groups, and local people to safeguard their civilization's heritage—past, present, and future. It is a call to action, urging us to accelerate progress toward a world where all civilizations are treated with respect and dignity.

If you are interested in participating in Civilization Rights Day, there are various ways to get involved. You can attend events, organize your own event, or volunteer with one of our partner organizations.

Let's work together to protect and promote the diversity and richness of our world's civilizations.
