It’s Childrens Day! Today’s Google Doodle marks Children’s Day 2017 and as ‘The Independent’ newspaper points out; “it reminds us of the old adage, “Mighty oaks from little acorns grow.”
Children’s Day is an international celebration seeking to promote togetherness among kids around the world and improve children’s welfare.
Each year, a theme is given for children’s day and for 2017, the theme is #KidsTakeOver, with UNICEF inviting kids across the globe to take over grown-up roles such as in the media and politics to voice support for children in need.
To make the occasion even more high profile, David Beckham is interviewing children for a short film, along with his fellow sports stars David Villa and Sachin Tendulkar, making this a truly global effort.
Justin Forsyth, UNICEF Deputy Executive Director said: “From Auckland to Amman and from New York to N’Djamena, we want children to campaign in their schools and communities to help save children’s lives, fight for their rights and fulfil their potential.”
