On 20 November every year, World Children’s Day is celebrated to promote international togetherness and awareness among children worldwide, and to enhance the welfare of children. It was first observed as Universal Children’s Day in 1954.
On World Children’s Day, UNICEF promotes action for children, by children. Young people and children are speaking out on climate change, education, mental health, and ending racism and discrimination – important issues – and calling on adults to address them. This day serves as an inspiration to advocate, promote, and celebrate children’s rights, resulting in dialogues and actions that will make this world a better place for children.
