Young people are our future. Today’s young people are tomorrow’s scientists, politicians, doctors, teachers and the list goes on. In the future, they will inherit everything that we possess and accomplish, and will be charged with protecting the weak and vulnerable of this world, possibly making some of the hardest of decisions in order to do so.
World Children’s Day was first announced by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1954. Originally, its goals were to encourage children of all races, creeds and religions to spend time together, getting to know each other and appreciating each other’s differences, and to prompt governments worldwide to pay more attention to the welfare of their youngest citizens.
Although World Children’s Day takes place on 20 November, each country has its own date set aside for the celebration. In South Sudan, for example, Children’s Day is celebrated on 23 December, in Cuba on the third Sunday of July, and in Poland 1 June.
Since being established as a holiday, World Children’s Day has been tied to many different, honourable causes such as the commitment to eradicate HIV/AIDS by 2015, to provide every child access to an education and to promote peace, respect and concern for the environment un.org/en/events/childrenday/. You should consider engaging and participating in great World Children’s Day activities organised by Non-Governmental Organisations such as UNICEF.
This year we celebrate World Children’s Day by empowering them to change the world around them, by inspiring the hope and imagination in them, which will help them to change the world in the future. Therefore, we are asking all leaders and Scout masters to ask their Scouts this simple question, ‘What is the one thing that you will do if you have the power to change something?’
