Belgrade, 20 November 2019 – Traditionally on 20 November, through numerous activities, UNICEF in Serbia marked the 30th anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and World Children's Day.
Children and their parents were delighted with balloons and symbolic gifts, which UNICEF handed out to draw attention to the importance of child rights.
UNICEF Facers talked to parents about UNICEF’s achievements in 2019, inviting them to contribute to positive change for children through regular monthly donations.
In the three decades since the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, much has been done for children.
Rapid digitalization, climate change, prolonged conflict and massive migration are new global challenges that need to be addressed as they completely transform childhoods.
Children today face new threats that threaten their rights. That’s why the Convention on the Rights of the Child is more relevant than ever.
UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.
