Children's rights week

Universal Children's Day will be celebrated on November 20, and Children's rights week is annually celebrated around the United Nations’ Universal Children's Day. The aim of the theme week is to increase knowledge and understanding about the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, especially among children and the young.

In 2021, the children's rights week takes place on November 15-21, 2021. The theme of the week is children’s right to good treatment.

The theme week's website consists of ideas on how to implement the week that can be utilized by, among others, early childhood education, schools, and leisure-time actors.

The City of Vantaa will participate in celebrating the theme week. Check out the City of Vantaa's theme-week program on the event calendar.
