International Children’s Day

In 1925, the World Conference for the Well-being of Children in Geneva, Switzerland proclaimed June 1 to be the International Children’s Day. After the conference, many governments around the world decided to declare a day as Children’s Day in their respective countries to draw attention to issues pertaining to children. Many of the countries picked June 1 and as such, the International Children’s Day falls on June 1 every year. The day is normally celebrated with speeches on children’s rights and well-being as well as other events specially for children.
