Students Takeover for World Children's Day

Today, our students joined fellow Nord Anglia Education students around the world to raise their voice and address some of the most pressing questions facing the planet in a global chain reaction on social media spanning the US, Latin America, Europe, Middle East and Asia.

The call to action by Nord Anglia Education students marks the celebration of World Children’s Day, which is also the anniversary of the adoption of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Together, students shared their opinions to raise awareness and challenge people to take action on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, encouraging us all to play an active role in creating the future we want for our children.

“This World Children’s Day we want children to have fun, with a purpose,” said Najwa Mekki, Head of UNICEF Media. “It’s a day of action for children, by children. We want them to campaign in their schools and communities to help save children’s lives, fight for their rights and fulfill their potential.”

Over the past 24 hours, Nord Anglia students asked and answer questions about the issues that matter to them, sharing their video responses via Twitter. Our students kicked off the chain reaction by posing a question to our schools in China and Singapore. Check out our video below or here on Twitter.

Leading up to our response,  students have been sharing their views on the question, "Should the one child policy be global for the next 30 years?".

This event is part of UNICEF’s World Children’s Day campaign #KidsTakeOver - a day when students take over schools, businesses and government organisations around the world to raise awareness of children’s rights. For one day, Nord Anglia students around the world will take over their schools. The day will culminate with 40 Nord Anglia Education students celebrating World Children’s Day with more than 100 New York City students at UN Headquarters with Executive Director of UNICEF, Anthony Lake, UN Secretary General, António Guterres, and various child activists and celebrities.

This event is part of Nord Anglia Education’s work with UNICEF to empower children and raise awareness of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals using the World’s Largest Lesson, a teaching and learning initiative co-led by UNICEF.
