Universal Children’s Day is celebrated around the world on November 20. It is also the day when the UN General Assembly adopted the declaration of the ‘Rights of the Child’ in 1959.
This year, the UNICEF has planned something special for children around the world.
To promote the campaign, UNICEF launched a promotional video which is slowly taking over the internet.
The 14-year-old actor, Millie Bobby ‘Blue’ symbolically changed her name to mark the occasion said, “World Children’s Day is a fun day with a serious message”.
Go blue, from India to Australia and Jordan
India celebrates its Children’s Day on 14th November while Australia celebrates on 25th October and Jordan celebrates its Children’s Day on 20th November.
Across the globe, some of the iconic landmarks will be lighting up blue for World Children’s Day.
To support UNICEF’s global ‘Go Blue’ campaign in India, buildings, corporate houses, monuments such as the Rashtrapati Bhawan, will be lit up in blue.
