BIS Abu Dhabi Students Takeover for World Children's Day

The British School Abu Dhabi student's will come together with fellow Nord Anglia Education students around the world on 20th November 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. 

  • World Children's Day

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 will be making their opinions heard to raise awareness and challenge people to take action on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

“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 fulfil their potential.”

Over 24 hours, Nord Anglia students will set and answer questions about the issues that matter to them, sharing their video responses via Twitter. Our students will share their response at 12.00pm – look out for the video at twitter.com/bis_ad

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, as well as regional and central teams. 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.
