All over the world, at the same time, children taking part in the WCP program invite media and sometimes also local leaders to their own press conference to share the latest news about children's rights and WCP. Only children are allowed to speak at a World's Children's Press Conference. They talk about the changes they want to see where they live and around the world. They raise issues that concern everything from the equal rights of all people to democracy and sustainable development.
It's more important than ever now to spread knowledge about the rights of the child and global challenges via the media. Raising awareness puts pressure on those in power, and makes them think more about children when they're making decisions.
