World Children’s Day 2020

Voices of Youth Drawing Challenge

Calling all Children and Young People of Cardiff! 

World Children’s day falls on Nov 20th, 2020. Child Friendly Cardiff would like as many children as possible to participate in a simple activity this year: 

Draw the world you want to build after COVID-19 

We would love for pupils to let their imagination run wild, to reimagine the world. Here are some ideas that may help: 

  • A greener and more sustainable world
  • A future of wellbeing and mental health 
  • The future of education and work
  • A future without discrimination 
  • Children’s rights that are important to you 

Simply take a picture of your works of art, or you could even create them digitally. Showcase them on your social media accounts, tag us, and add the following hashtags: 

#childfriendlycdf #worldchildrensday #voicesofyouth 

You can also send them to childfriendlycardiff@cardiff.gov.uk 

Child Friendly Cardiff will be showcasing all creations in the run up to World Children’s Day on Nov 20th. 

Note to Educators

To celebrate World Children’s Day and support this drawing project, the Child Friendly Cardiff Team will be delivering a free box of chalks to primary schools participating in RRSA programme before Tuesday the 17th of November. We invite you to get as many children involved with this activity as possible. Below are some links for chalk drawing games and activities you might find useful. Please share results using the following hashtags:
