Wellington, New Zealand

We’ve spent the last few days walking the streets of Wellington… enjoying the vibrant energy, diversity, and creativity this southernmost capital city exudes. Here a selection of snapshots (and truisms) from the city’s walls, windows, and facades…

Nelson Mandela to Obama…

“Your victory has demonstrated that no person anywhere in the world should not dare to dream of wanting to change the world for a better place.”

(thanks, Chaz)

It’s (finally) a happier and more hopeful day for most Americans as well as billions of others around the world… may the nascent dreams for a better future indeed be realized…

Universal Declaration… now on video.

On December 10, 1948 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Following this historic act the Assembly called upon all Member countries to publicize the text of the Declaration and “to cause it to be disseminated, displayed, read and expounded principally in schools and other educational institutions, without distinction based on the political status of countries or territories.” Today, as we approach the 60th anniversary of that momentous occasion, less than 5% of the world’s population even knows that the Declaration exists. Do you know your human rights?

To celebrate the milestone anniversary (coming up on 10 December 2008), designer Seth Brau created an engaging type-based video. Enjoy it, here, and please do what you can to help disseminate the Declaration, an important and timeless treatise for all humankind. You can find over 337 different language versions of the Declaration here.
