That was the motto of this year’s World Children’s Day (20.09.2022). In order to stand up for the realization and the visualization of children’s rights, the students of classes 8 and 9 painted children’s rights on the elementary school yard this week and thus gave space to their demands. The pictures are unmistakable signs that it is urgently time to implement children’s rights.
We demand a just and sustainable world. Children’s rights are not fully implemented in Germany even 30 years after they came into force. Even in Kenya, access to education, the right to freedom of expression, and protection from violence and abuse, to name a few, are not guaranteed. Our future is in the hands of our children – they must all be protected.
