Do you want to get involved in increasing respect for children’s rights where you live, in your country and in the world?

Become a changemaker!

The World’s Children’s Prize Program (WCP) and The Globe magazine will share with you the stories of how brave Child Rights Ambassadors, Child Rights Heroes and children around the world are fighting for a better world for children. Join them and be a changemaker too! 46 million children have taken part in the annual WCP Program, one of the world’s biggest annual children’s rights education programs.

The Rights of the Child

The Convention on the Rights of the Child applies to all children, everywhere. Is it observed where you live, at home and at school? Do boys and girls have equal rights? Can you make your voice heard about issues that affect you and your friends? How can things be improved for children where you live, in your country and in the world? Find out how the world’s children are doing and meet the members of the WCP Child Jury, Child Rights Ambassadors and the children they fight for.
