World Children’s Day is celebrated annually to build a global movement of support for every child. This year, we are celebrating 30 years since world leaders adopted the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the most widely ratified human rights treaty in history.
Join us in celebrating the rights of children, today and every day as enshrined in the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Children are standing up for their rights! What will you do?
“For those of us who live in island nations, we are already seeing and feeling and living the consequences of a warming planet.
