Monaco prepares to celebrate International Children’s Rights Day

By Cassandra Tanti - October 21, 2019

International Children’s Rights Day turns 30 this year and in preparation for the upcoming occasion, the Principality is selling badges at all local schools with proceeds to benefit charity.

The badges, which say “I take part in the Day of the Rights of the Child”, are now available at private and state schools and will benefit the humanitarian associations sponsored by the Department of National Education, Youth and Sports.  

The United Nations program, whose goal is to “promote international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide and improving children’s welfare”, is celebrated every year on 20th November.

In addition to the badges, the Principality will be sponsoring events leading up to the day. The first is an information and awareness campaign in conjunction with various Monegasque humanitarian organisations from 1st to 8th November.

This will be followed up on the actual day when a programme of fun and festivities is planned at the Grimaldi Forum. Activities dedicated to children, primarily between the ages of three and 13, will be offered and include educational booths, awareness workshops and games.

That evening, a special performance will be given by French actor, singer, comedian and master imitator Mickaël Gregorio at the Grimaldi Forum’s Salle des Princes at 7:30pm.

Tickets are available at www.grimaldiforum.com starting at €39.
