Recognise Universal Children's Day
Petition Background (Preamble):
It recommended that the Day was to be observed also as a day of activity devoted to promoting the ideals and objectives of the Charter and the welfare of the children of the world. The Assembly suggested to governments that the Day be observed on the date and in the way which each considers appropriate.
The date 20 November, marks the day on which the Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child, in 1959...The United Kingdom, however does NOT officially recognise this day....we want to change that....register here to help us have this as an official day to recognise the welfare of children worldwide
