International Childrens Day in Ukraine in 2023
In 1991, Ukraine joined the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, however, it began to mark the holiday since 1998 - after President Leonid Kuchma signed the Decree On Children's Day on May 30.
The origin of this holiday goes back to 1925, when representatives from different countries met in Geneva, Switzerland to convene the first "World Conference for the Wellbeing of Children". After the conference, some governments around the world designated a day as Childrens Day to highlight childrens issues. There was no specific date recommended, so countries used whatever date was most relevant to their culture.
Many countries have established a Children's Day but this is commonly not observed as a public holiday. For instance, some countries observe Children's' Day on November 20th as Universal Children’s Day. This day was established by the United Nations in 1954 and aims to promote the welfare of children around the world.Find out more
