It has already been nearly a century since June 1 was proclaimed ‘Children’s Day’ at the ‘World Conference for the Well-being of Children’ in Geneva, Switzerland, in 1925, with the goal of highlighting the needs of children. More and more countries have joined the initiative since its launch, showing their support to youngsters and helping to end the problems they face in society. Children’s Day was universally established in 1954.
However, the United Nations, which is regarded as the most respected institution on the international platform, has expanded the scope of International Children’s Day after 29 years from the declaration announced at the World Conference for the Well-Being of Children. The United Nations declared that the rights of the children’s are not special rights, they are basic human rights. After the adaptation of the Declaration of the Rights of the Child in 1954, United Nations announced November 20 as Universal Children’s Day.
