A Caring World Shares

Children’s Week™ is a national celebration of children’s rights, talents and citizenship and always celebrated around Universal Children’s Day which is held on the fourth Wednesday of October in Australia.

In 1996 it was decided to adopt a permanent theme: “A Caring World Shares” as a reflection of Children’s Week aims while at the same time acknowledging the designated year on national posters and other printed materials.

A diverse range of events and activities are organised at National, State and Local levels. These focus the attention of the wider community on children, their needs and achievements.

Children’s Week celebrates the right of children to enjoy childhood. It is also a time for children to demonstrate their talents, skills and abilities.

Thousands of children and their families around the country are involved in activities and events during “The Week” through the participation of schools, playgroups, childcare, kindergartens, cultural groups, libraries, departments and community groups.

Speak up for children’s rights

Anyone of any age can speak up for the rights of children.

You can get informed and tackle child rights issues in your own life, community or the big wide world. Maybe you already know of a problem that children are facing that you want to change. You can use these resources to take action and influence change.
