OutRight empowers children and young people to realise their own rights, and to speak out in support of the rights of all children.
This year is the thirtieth anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and we are encouraging children and young people to celebrate this landmark moment through OutRight.
This year we will learn how the Convention was created and the difference rights have made for children all over the world in the last thirty years. We need your support to empower children and young people to show decision makers what still needs to be done to make rights a reality for all children. Don’t worry if you didn’t take part last year though, as this campaign is open to all schools and youth organisations.
Get involved to help young people learn about children’s rights and ensure their voices are heard by key political decision-makers, as well as people in your local community. Your support will contribute to a key area of Unicef UK’s work.
Who can join?
Any school or youth organisation in the UK can take part. All you need to do is register here.
We provide you with free supporting resources to help you facilitate the OutRight campaign. These resources are available from the middle of August and will be emailed to those who register.
When does OutRight take place?
OutRight starts in September, with a key day of celebration on 20 November, World Children’s Day, and continues until the spring.
Schools and youth organisations can sign up for OutRight and participate in activities at any time during the school year.
