Expo 2023 Doha Celebrates World Children's Day with a Focus on Rights and Sustainability

November 22, 2023

Expo 2023 Doha is taking an active stance in celebrating World Children's Day with engaging activities at Expo School in the family zone, running until November 25th. The overarching theme for 2023 is "For every child, every right."

World Children's Day, originally established in 1954 as Universal Children's Day, holds a unique significance on November 20th .  Indeed, this date marks the adoption of the Declaration of the Rights of the Child by the UN General Assembly in 1959 and the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989. Since 1990, the day serves as a reminder of these critical milestones in advancing children's rights globally.

Expo 2023 Doha is leveraging this occasion to emphasize sustainability and environmental awareness. Expo School in the family zone is dedicated to inspiring activities that underscore the importance of preserving the environment. The goal is to instil into children a sense of eco-consciousness and sustainability attitudes to ensure that today’s learnings can bear fruit in the decades to come.  

The celebrations at Expo 2023 Doha are inclusive, welcoming the active participation of many constituents such as parents, teachers, healthcare professionals, government leaders, activists, and community members. The collective effort aims to make World Children's Day relevant to diverse societies and communities, fostering a deeper understanding of the significance of children's rights.

Expo 2023 Doha invites visitors to contribute to the global movement for children's rights and sustainability. By participating in the activities at Expo School, attendees can join the initiative to build a better world for children.
