Every child deserves equitable access to education, health care, and safety.
World Children’s Day was established in 1954 and is celebrated on November 20th each year to promote international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide, and improving children’s welfare.
Mothers and fathers, teachers, nurses and doctors, government leaders and civil society activists, religious and community elders, corporate moguls and media professionals, as well as young people and children themselves, can play an important part in making World Children’s Day relevant for their societies, communities, and nations.
World Children’s Day offers each of us an inspirational entry-point to advocate, promote and celebrate children’s rights, translating into dialogues and actions that will build a better world for Children.
2018: Children are taking over and turning the world blue
This year the world is going blue! We’re asking individuals, schools and corporates worldwide to go blue to help build a world where every child is in school, safe from harm and can fulfill their potential, and we know you do too. Going blue activities include: sharing our promo video for Children’s day, signing the global petition and going blue in support of children’s rights in social media, and much, much more.
World Children’s Day – a day for children, by children – is here and we want you to take part.
