World Children’s Day is celebrated and commemorated as the anniversary of the Declaration of the Rights of the Child and the adoption of Convention on Rights of the Child. This day was established by the United Nations to improve children’s welfare around the world. It is an inspiring event to enhance the progress on children’s rights issues, and to disseminate culture and practices that promote the happiness and welfare of every child.
Despite the progress made in the field of children’s rights, the challenges to meet the needs of every child are still great, especially after the unprecedented disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic to the quality of care and education for children in all countries. Such situation revealed the equity and equality gap between children and the unequal access to learning resources and early education and care services. Accordingly, the question remains open: How to mitigate the consequences of crises, including Covid-19, on children’s health and learning? And how to figure out innovative ways and solutions to recover lost learning opportunities for each child and to provide learning environments where each satisfies his/her needs and aspirations.
Within this context, the Regional Center for Quality and Excellence in Education, in cooperation with several national, regional and international institutions and organizations, celebrates the World Children’s Day through diverse activities to inspire education systems, child care and education service providers, societies and families to move forward towards creating sustainable learning environments that meet the needs of every child. Joint work is the only way to address the renewable and unprecedent challenges facing our world.
