National Child Day

November 20 is National Child Day in Canada, also celebrated across the globe as World Children’s Day. This is because on November 20, 1989, the United Nations adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), a promise to children to protect and promote their human rights. On this day, everyone in Canada and around the world is encouraged to “Go Blue” for children and youth. Monuments across the country will light up blue, people will wear blue and many voices will take to social media to champion the day online. National Child Day is a day for children, by children—a chance to hear from children and youth about what matters to them. To download the Blue Toolkit, visit oneyouth.unicef.ca.
