United Nations Universal Children’s Day was established in 1954 and is celebrated on November 20th each year to promote international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide, and improve children's welfare.

The theme of International children's day is, 'Investing in our future means investing in our children'.

The blue color is the symbol for children's rights on Children's Day.

November 20th was chosen as it is the date in 1959 when the UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child. It is also the date in 1989 when the UN General assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

"Around the world, children are showing us their strength and leadership advocating for a more sustainable world for all. Let’s build on advances and re-commit to putting children first. For every child, every right."

UN Secretary-General António Guterres
