We shared the POP-UP Festival with the UNICEF team leading World Children’s Day and great progress:
So far, over 2000 volunteers have signed up and committed to bring these wonderful activities about emotions, wellbeing & children’s rights to over 350,000 children in almost 150 countries!
UNICEF is doing vital work to protect children, and one day a year, it’s time to celebrate. World Children’s Day is an opportunity to focus on progress the world’s made toward protecting children’s rights — and the future: Our children.
UNICEF’s “World Children’s Day” — the UN’s “Universal Children’s Day” — celebrates the signing of the Convention on the Rights of the Child 29 years ago on November 20. 

As we’ve done the last two years, this year Six Seconds’ community will be holding POP-UP Festivals on emotions, wellbeing, and children’s rights around the world all November. Read more and join this inspiring celebration here.

The “POP-UP Festival” is a collection of interactive games & learning activities that teach valuable insights about emotions, wellbeing, and children’s rights. Parents, educators, or other volunteers organize a POP-UP Festival by selecting the appropriate activities for their audience, printing them out & gathering simple supplies, then bringing people together. POP! It’s a festival.

The POP-UP Festival activities work for a wide age range. Some activities are geared to those under 5-years-old, many are ideal for 6-10 year-olds, there are several specifically for tweens and teens — and many of the exercises are the very ones we use in our corporate training programs and so a POP-UP Festival can be for just adults too!

UNICEF’s logo is blue, and our planet is blue, so the theme for this year’s World Children’s Day is #GoBlue — in November, children are encouraged to wear blue or make blue pictures or take blue selfies — or use the activities in the POP-UP Festival kit — and to also sign the World Children’s Day petition that will be online starting Nov 8.

We’re thrilled that the Six Seconds’ community can work in direct support of UNICEF in this year’s event as partners in the World Children’s Day celebration.


Celebrate World Children’s Day and Go Blue on Nov 20

We’ll share the petition as soon as it’s available!
