The Children’s Rights: why were they created?

World Children Day takes place on the day in which the Declaration and Convention on the Rights of the Child were signed (Junior Report / Academia Play)

The governments of 195 countries presented a treaty to protect the most vulnerable of all: boys and girls

The rights of all the children of the world were discussed for the first time more than half a century ago in the Declaration of the Rights of the Child (1959).  However, this declaration was not enough to protect them: which is why the Convention on the Rights of the Child was created (1989).

What are the differences between these two documents? What are the main rights of children? Why are they celebrated on November 20?

Here’s a video developed in collaboration with Academia Play to help you understand.
