Twenty forth article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Route to Human Rights

Article 24 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that everyone has the right to rest, leisure, reasonable limitation of working hours and periodic holidays with pay. This right is essential to ensure that people are not only engaged in work, but also have sufficient time for leisure, rest and personal life, which is essential for their physical and mental well-being. The balance between work and leisure is crucial for a full and healthy life, allowing people to regain energy and enjoy their lives outside of work.

The importance of Article 24 lies in its recognition of the need to reconcile work and family life and to protect workers from exploitation and exhaustion. By limiting working hours and guaranteeing the right to paid leave, it promotes a more humane and sustainable working environment. This not only improves the quality of life of workers, but can also increase productivity and job satisfaction. In addition, this article underlines the importance of free time for personal and social development, allowing people to participate in cultural, family and leisure activities, thus enriching their lives and contributing to a more balanced and happier society.

The plaque with Article 24 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is located at the intersection of La Revolta and Martagona, in Melide.
