Discovering Children’s Rights
“Children’s rights” are not just a series of articles set out in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. They are living rights that are interpreted and understood differently, depending on how developed a child aged 0-18 is.
Big or small, alone or with friends or family, have fun discovering children’s rights throughout the city of Geneva, the birthplace of children’s rights.
