Get ready for the global day of action for child rights.
World Children’s Day is UNICEF’s annual day of action for children, by children.
This year is extra special as it marks 30 years of the Convention on the Rights of the Child – 30 years of child rights that have helped transform children’s lives around the world.
A time to celebrate and a time to demand action. Children are telling us, loud and clear: it is time for every child, to have every right.
On 20 November, kids will stand up for their rights. What will you do?
Are you ready for World Children’s Day?
Here’s how you can get involved:
Know your rights and speak out #WorldChildrensDay
Help your children know their rights
Get the World Children’s Day lesson plan
Host a children’s take over
Support the global pledge
From children taking over to famous landmarks turning blue, here’s a taste of what to expect on the day.
Turn the world blue
Landmark buildings around the world will light up blue on the day to show support for child rights. From wearing something blue to decorating your classroom or office, you too can help turn the world blue. Something subtle to very visible, anything blue goes!
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.
National summits for children
Children will participate in national summits in major capitals around the world, holding leaders to account for the promises they have made to fulfil children’s rights.
