World Children’s Day
Join us on 20 November to stand up for children’s rights.
World Children’s Day is UNICEF’s annual day of action for children, by children.
From climate change, education and mental health, to ending racism and discrimination, children and young people are raising their voices on the issues that matter to their generation and calling for adults to create a better future.
This World Children’s Day, it’s more important than ever that the world listens to their ideas and demands.
On 20 November, kids will stand up for their rights. What will you do?
From children taking over to famous landmarks turning blue, here’s a taste of what to expect on the day.
Kids take over
Children will ‘take over’ high-visibility roles in media, politics, business, sport and entertainment normally held by adults to shine a spotlight on issues that matter to them.
Turn the world blue
Schools and landmark buildings around the world will light up blue on the day to show support for child rights. From wearing something blue to changing your profile picture online, you too can help turn the world blue.
