Children in Africa rallying for education.
Guide to
Changemaker Day

Changemaker Day is held alongside children and schools worldwide. Organize it whenever it suits you and your school best!

As part of the grand finale of your work on this year’s WCP Program, children vote for their rights and speak out about the changes you want to see.

The children’s Global Vote

In the Global Vote, students take on the roles of election officers and observers. They vote for their rights and, along with children worldwide, choose the recipient of the World’s Children’s Prize for the Rights of the Child in their own democratic election before making their voices heard.

My Voice for Rights and Change

Students make their voices heard their desire to see greater respect for children’s rights. They give speeches and share their messages on placards and banners with other children. Invite parents, local politicians and the media, so they can learn about the rights of the child, and discover what changes children want where you live, and in your country.

Round the Globe for Rights and Change

Students end Changemaker Day by bringing their placards and banners on a 3 km walk or run – sharing them with many more people, and raising awareness about the rights of the child. Together with children worldwide they cover lap after lap around the globe, for a better village or town, country and world.
