crc25-1minjrWhat do Child Rights mean to you? Tell UNICEF in a video!

As the 25th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child approaches in November 2014, UNICEF want to hear from you. From declining infant mortality to rising school enrolment, more children are realizing their basic rights. But this historic milestone must also serve as an urgent reminder that there’s still a long road ahead. Too many children still don’t enjoy their full rights!

The OneMinutesJr video challenge is open to young people up to the age of 20. We’re asking you to get creative and produce a 60-second film (with title and credits) on a theme related to child rights.
