We are encouraging kids to ‘take over’ classes and assemblies to raise their voices, help save children's lives and fight for their rights to help them reach their full potential. There are lots of ways for children to get involved.
• Take part in a fun group fitness exercise, linked to the official World Children’s Day music video
• Be creative! Put together a story, picture or film clip filled with ideas of how to make the world better for children
• Design a World Children’s Day emoji
• Lead a fundraiser at school – breakfast, bake sale, sponsored no-uniform day, talent show

On Saturday 18 November, join thousands of people in gyms in over 100 countries in a massive global fitness effort to bring clean, safe water to children. Actors and philanthropists Deborra-lee Furness and Hugh Jackman are supporting the fundraising efforts for World Children’s Day through #WorkoutFor Water.
One water pump costs just US$414, and just one pump can bring clean, safe drinking water to an entire community. Every drop and every dollar counts.
