ABOUT: World Children's Day & the Convention on the Rights of the Child
November 20, 2021
World Children's Day is celebrated on the 20th of November in order to commemorate the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989), the first international treaty to integrate all human rights in reference to children.
The goal is that on the basis of this popular Convention, the public can come together to promote and celebrate a child’s ability to participate more fully in family, social, and cultural life.
And yet, one seemingly impossible fact casts a shadow over all good intentions: The United States remains the only country in the world that has not ratified this Convention.
On November 20th, the UNA-SF will examine this unique phenomenon from several angles. We will discuss the history and background of World Children’s Day and the Convention on the Rights of the Child. We will also commemorate and even celebrate what the Convention is capable of by looking to other countries. Finally, we will discuss just why the United States has remained alone in the world regarding the CRC’s ratification. And most importantly, we will show how we can begin to turn this situation around.
