Celebrating World Children’s Day 2023: A Call to Action for Every Child’s Right

World Children's Day


You’ve heard it said: children are our future. As we mark World Children’s Day this 2023, the theme ‘For every child, every right’ isn’t just a slogan; it’s a call to action. This day, established by the United Nations, is a reminder of our responsibility to advocate for the rights of every child. In this blog post, we’ll explore how this commitment aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), focusing on Zero Hunger (Goal 2), Good Health and well-being (Goal 3), and Quality Education (Goal 4).

The Significance of World Children’s Day

Established by the United Nations in 1954, World Children’s Day is observed on November 20th, commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of the Rights of the Child and the Convention on the Rights of the Child. It is a day to advocate for, promote, and celebrate children’s rights, translating into dialogues and actions to build a better world for children.

2023 Theme and Sustainable Development Goals

“This year’s theme, ‘For every child, every right,‘ directly ties into several SDGs. Let’s delve into how it connects with three critical goals:

  1. SDG 2: Zero Hunger – No child should go to bed hungry. Zero Hunger is more than food scarcity; it’s about nutrition, food security, and sustainable agriculture. We uphold children’s rights to proper nutrition and development by addressing these issues.
  2. SDG 3: Good Health & Well-being – This goal emphasises every child’s right to good health. It’s about healthcare access, mental health, and a healthy environment. In a world still grappling with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing on children’s holistic health is more vital than ever.
  3. SDG 4: Quality Education – Education is a fundamental right. Quality education goes beyond literacy; it equips children with the knowledge, skills, and values to lead healthy, fulfilling lives and contribute to society.

Global Challenges Impacting Children

Today’s children face unprecedented challenges: climate change, inequality, conflicts, and pandemics. These obstacles threaten their rights and hinder progress towards the SDGs. As advocates for children’s rights and members of MUNAA, we have a crucial role in addressing these global challenges.
