On the occasion of World Children's Day, which is celebrated today, November 20th, two events will be held in Dubrovnik this week. It's the way to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and 20 years to the "Cities and Municipalities of Children's Friendly Action", which declared Dubrovnik a child-friendly city.
World Children’s Day was first established in 1954 as Universal Children's Day and is celebrated on 20 November each year to promote international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide, and improving children's welfare.
On this occasion, Our Children Society Dubrovnik is organizing a meeting of the Children's City Council of Dubrovnik with the Deputy Mayor of the City of Dubrovnik, Jelka Tepsic, the Mayor of the City Council, Marko Potrebica, and the City Councilors today at noon. Among other things, the meeting will highlight the importance of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and what the City of Dubrovnik has done for children over the course of 20 years.
Celebration will continue on Friday, November 22th, with a cultural event for children in the fifth hall of Lazareti starting at 7:30 pm. The Lazareti Dance Studio, the Dubrovnik Children's Choir, the Zumba Kids Dubrovnik Dance and Recreation Studio, the Dapal 7 band and the puppet group of the Marin Getaldic school will perform. The event is organized by the City of Dubrovnik, Our Children Dubrovnik Society and Dubrovnik Heritage through the Creative Quarter project.
