UNICEF, with support from the City of Belgrade, is organizing a benefit concert to mark the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The concert will be held on 13 November 2019 in Sava Centre and will feature performances by the Kolibri Choir and special guests, violinists Nemanja Radulović and Stefan Milenković.
Thirty years ago, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child. It is the first legally binding document on children’s rights that contains four key principles: non-discrimination, the best interests of the child, survival and development, and respect for the views of the child. Today, children face new challenges that threaten their rights. Rapid digitization, climate change, prolonged conflict and mass migration are completely transforming many childhoods. This anniversary is an opportunity to accelerate progress and intensify action to meet these new challenges so that every child, today and in the future, has an equal chance in life.
One way to achieve this is to invest in preschool education. Kindergartens are places which lay foundations for children’s future lives, where they learn to think creatively, acquire self-confidence, socialize and collaborate with one another. That is why UNICEF is using all the proceeds from the concert to support preschool education in the Republic of Serbia.
Tickets are on sale at the Sava Centre box office and Tickets.rs.
