Our Challenge website (2011)

The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is the first human rights treaty of the 21st Century. It is also one of the fastest treaties to be agreed by countries from around the world.

The Our Challenge website was setup to help celebrate, educate and activate the Convention in New Zealand by becoming a hub for stories, opinions, views and reports on what effect it is having on peoples lives.

DPA and its partners People First and CCS Disability Action put in an application for the prize money on offer when New Zealand was awarded the Franklin Delano Roosevelt International Disability Award back in 2007.

The Our Challenge website is run using the WordPress open source content management system.
