Spread the word! Passez le mot!
It’s with great pleasure that we announce Child Rights Education Week 2017!
Youth in Canada have rights protected under the Convention on the Rights of the Child. And governments have the responsibility to promote and protect those rights.
This year CREW is focusing on Article 4 and Article 12 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which discuss governments’ responsibility to promote and protect child rights and child’s right to be heard. Your help is needed in celebrating Child Rights Education Week.
Join the movement and make your voice heard.
Starting November 1st until the 26th you can participate in the conversation about Child Rights. Young people and children are engaging in a national social media campaign using #RightToBeHeard and #MyRightsCRC, they’re posting pictures, videos, and quotes answering these questions:
- What’s your ideal Canada look like?
- Do you feel your rights are being respected?
- What would make the world better?
