2017-11-20 GENERAL HOUSE

November 20

The Universal Children’s Day takes place on November 20. The United Nations General Assembly in 1954 recommended its celebration. It aimed at encouraging all countries to establish an official day to: promote mutual exchange and understanding among children; launch an initiative to support and promote the well-being of children around the world; celebrate the Children’s Day annually.


November 20 is also the anniversary of the day in which the UN’s General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child in 1959. The Convention on the Rights of the Child was also approved that same day in 1989.
