Universal Children’s Day


Universal Children’s Day

Today is Universal Children’s Day. It’s a day where we celebrate the unique role that children play in our societies – from the simple pleasures each child gives their parents to the energy and vibrancy that they bring to our nations. We must also take time to remind ourselves of the obligations we have to our children and to future generations. To ensure that they have the opportunity to fulfill their potential, by investing in their education and their well-being; that they live in societies that protect their rights and provide them with a voice; and that we continue to preserve our environment, so that they can enjoy nature’s wonders.
