Universal Children’s Day Panel Discussion

The Global Goals: Is Canada up to the Challenge?

RESULTS Canada, in partnership with the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs (NPSIA) is pleased to invite you to a panel discussion on Friday, November 20, 2015. This day marks significant international landmarks in children’s rights, including the United Nations General Assembly’s adoption of both the Declaration of the Rights of the Child in 1959 and the Convention of the Rights of the Child in 1989. As Universal Children’s Day and the National Day of the child, we encourage you to join us for a discussion addressing the challenges and opportunities facing children and girls and the role of Canada’s new Government in the implementation of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
