Right to not be discriminated by race, gender, age, physical and mental disabilities, beliefs, anything.

Right to be free of slavery in any part of the world.  

Right to not be forced into military services
Mandatory military service should not be mandatory. (I’m looking at you, North Korea!)
The right to be educated in your country’s main languages towards primary and secondary education
The right to education for 12 years to prepare them for their future careers and possibly post secondary. The rights to receive education in the your country’s main languages. ex: Canada- French and English

The freedom to own land
As long as taxes corresponding to that country’s standards you may own chunks of land in your home country and other countries if it is allowed in those countries

Process in making this Charter:

We started with what we thought would be the ideal society. It should be fair, it should be modern (in that it takes into account the 21st century) and it should be realistic. I think that the Internet should've been a right because Finland has that right. The Charter we have created is showing what we think should be implemented into a world wide Charter of Rights and Freedoms like the one Canada has. This Charter is a combination of what we have learned and what we could see change in today’s modern world. I think that these rights should be available to everybody in the univers
