On World Children’s Day on November 20 – the anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child – children will raise their voices in solidarity with the world’s most disadvantaged and vulnerable children.
To mark World Children’s Day in West and Central Africa, children from various countries in the region will take over the ‘Africa Dialogues Conference’. On stage, the children will tell us about the Africa They Want.
The children and youth will come together in Accra (Ghana), where the Africa Dialogues event will take place in November under the theme The Africa We Want. The event will be streamed live, and recordings of the 5-10 minute talks by the children will be disseminated later on digital platforms
