The World Children’s Day by the United Nations takes place on November 20th. It was established in 1954 and is an important part in the history of children’s rights. On November 20th, 1959, the general assembly of the United Nations accepted the declaration of children’s rights. On the same day, 30 years later, they adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child. In it, the rights of children are described. Some of these are, for example, the right to live, to education, to leisure time and to be protected from exploitation and violence. The World Children’s Day promotes the rights of children around the world and draws attention to their living situation. It is celebrated in over 145 nations on different days.
