World Children’s Day was first established in 1954 as Universal Children's Day and is celebrated on 20 November each year to promote international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide, and improving children's welfare.

Since 1990, World Children's Day also marks the anniversary of the date that the UN General Assembly adopted both the Declaration and the Convention on children's rights.

Mothers and fathers, teachers, nurses and doctors, government leaders and civil society activists, religious and community elders, corporate moguls and media professionals, as well as young people and children themselves, can play an important part in making World Children's Day relevant for their societies, communities and nations.

World Children's Day offers each of us an inspirational entry-point to advocate, promote and celebrate children's rights, translating into dialogues and actions that will build a better world for children.

Join the Youth Advocating for Child Rights

Since COVID-19, the world has seen record breaking numbers of children out of school - more than 1.3 billion students under 18 were kept from going to school due to global lockdowns.

But education is not just about learning, it's about giving hope, lifting children out of poverty and providing them a chance for life in dignity and a better future. No matter what gender, religion or background, all children deserve the right to go to school and it is our shared responsibility to make it

This World Children’s Day, it’s more important than ever that the leaders listen to their ideas and demands.

Every child deserves to be safe, healthy and supported, with a chance to learn and choose the future they deserve.
