Recognise Universal Children's Day
- Tony Blair
- United Kingdom
On the 14 December 1954, the General Assembly recommended that all countries institute a Universal Children's Day, to be observed as a day of worldwide fraternity and understanding between children.
It recommended that the Day was to be observed also as a day of activity devoted to promoting the ideals and objectives of the Charter and the welfare of the children of the world. The Assembly suggested to governments that the Day be observed on the date and in the way which each considers appropriate.
The date 20 November, marks the day on which the Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child, in 1959...The United Kingdom, however does NOT officially recognise this day....we want to change that....register here to help us have this as an official day to recognise the welfare of children worldwide
We, the undersigned, think that it's time for the United Kingdom to officially recognise Universal Children's Day, as set up by the UN to be celebrated Worldwide.
