Bring Emotional Intelligence to Every Child for the U.N. Universal Children’s Day
There is no keener revelation of a society’s soul than how it treats its children.Nelson Mandela
To celebrate the United Nations’ Universal Children’s Day, November 20, allies in 100 countries will collaborate to bring more emotional intelligence awareness and resources to children and the adults who support them… and you are invited to be part of it!
The EQ #ChildrensDay celebration will increase awareness of the essential role that emotional intelligence plays in our children’s well-being, in our relationships with them; and in turn, in their capacity to make a positive difference in the world.
Starting on November 1, 2016, each week leading up to Universal Children’s Day, participants will get EQ kits with resources, tools, and tips to practice emotional intelligence around three essential themes: EQ for Self Awareness, EQ for Relationships, and EQ for Our World. Then, on Nov 20, everyone involved will be invited to the 11:20/11:20 celebration — with a 24-hour feed of sharing pictures, stories, feelings — focused on children.
The United Nations declared Universal Children’s Day to encourage societies to support the wellbeing of children. November 20th is the anniversary of the signing of Convention on the Rights of the Child, the most widely-signed human rights legislation in the history of the world.
