Thirty years of child rights: If it's not rights, it's wrong

Today is Universal Children's Day, and marks three decades of child rights since the UN General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child--the most widely ratified human rights treaty in history.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, we've collaborated on a video with spoken-word artist Potent Whisper and children across London to share their thoughts on child rights.

In their words: if it's not rights, it's wrong.

“If we do not listen to children as experts on their own realities, how can we possibly understand the risks that they face and work with them to co-design systems and programmes to better protect them?” - Tricia Young, CEO Tdh UK
