Actions

Sometimes you need to take action to attract interest, inform and engage policy-makers, professional groups and the general public on human rights issues.

The Human Rights Channel provides a platform for selected public interest actions linked to specific Council of Europe standards, conventions and mechanisms.

EUROPEAN DAY FOR ORGAN DONATION AND TRANSPLANTATION

Every day, 18 die while waiting for a transplant. This is why the European Day for Organ Donation and Transplantation is so important. This year’s event is taking place on September 9. Think what you could do to help the thousands of patients waiting for a transplant.
