World Children's Day

What is World Children's Day?
World Children's Day on the 20th of November is an exciting day for everyone. It commemorates the day, when, in 1989, the Convention on the Rights of the Child was adopted by the United Nations. This important document has four key principles; a right to survival and development, protecting children's best interests, non-discrimination and respecting children's views.
