EU celebrates Universal Children’s Day and the 25th Anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child

20 November 2014, Brussels - Children have always been and remain at the heart of EU policy. Inspired by the Convention, the EU promotes children's rights through specific Guidelines as well as through the EU Agenda for the rights of the child for internal action.

This year we celebrate the award of the Nobel Peace Prize to the young Pakistani activist for female education Malala Yousafzai and to the Indian child right's activist Kailash Satyarthi. Both have fought courageously for the girls' right to education which the EU considers as the best investment we can make in development.
