Day of General Discussion 2018 on Children as Human Rights Defenders – A page for children!

What is a Day of General Discussion?

The Committee on the Rights of the Child (The Committee) is a group of 18 people from all over the world  who know a lot about children.
Their job is to advise governments about children’s rights in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, like for example the right of children to speak up and be heard by adults (see video below).

The Committee holds a Day of General Discussion (DGD) in Geneva every two years in September focused on a specific topic about children as included in the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) or a related subject. Previous themes have included ‘Children’s Rights and the Environment’ in 2016 and ‘Digital Media and Children’s Rights’ in 2014.

The 2018 DGD will be on “Protecting and empowering children as human rights defenders”.

The DGD 2018 logo has been designed by the DGD Child Advisory Team!

Read the DGD children’s publication:

The views, perspectives and recommendations of children across the world“!

The report presents the findings of the DGD children’s global consultations and is a key resource to be discussed during the DGD.
