World Children’s Day (A day for children, by children) marks the anniversary of the Convention on the Right of the Child.
UNICEF Australia conducted an event celebrating the day, where UNICEF Ambassadors, Artist Ken Done AM, MasterChef Winner Adam Liaw and children’s music group The Wiggles conducted events on their respective parts by encouraging a range of ‘takeovers’.
