Thirty years ago, world leaders made a historic commitment to the world’s children by adopting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child – an international agreement on childhood. It’s become the most widely ratified human rights treaty in history and has helped transform children’s lives around the world. But still not every child gets to enjoy a full childhood; too many childhoods are cut short. It is up to our generation to demand that leaders from government, business and communities fulfil their commitments and take action for child rights now, once and for all. They must commit to making sure every child has every right. Sweden has taken one step by now making it into a law by January 1, 2020.
Ms. Poletti, Social Science Teacher at IES Nacka has put up two exhibitions of The Convention of the Rights of Children in the school in Swedish and materials for classroom activity was sent in both English and Swedish.
