Ahlström Collective Impact celebrates World Children’s Day together with UNICEF Finland

United Nations’ World Children’s Day is celebrated on November 20 each year to promote children’s rights and welfare. For the third consecutive year Ahlström Collective Impact joins forces with UNICEF Finland to raise awareness about the wellbeing of the new generations as part of the World Children’s Day celebrations.

The World Children’s Day was first established in 1954 as the Universal Children’s Day The UN General Assembly started World Children’s Day in 1954 to promote international togetherness and awareness among children worldwide and improve children’s welfare. Childhood is one of the most critical periods in life. This is when the development of cognitive skills, emotional wellbeing, social competence, and sound physical and mental health builds a strong foundation for success well into adulthood. Along with the basic needs of nutrition, health, shelter, and quality education, play is essential to growing the potential for future success.

During the week leading up to November 20, the members of Ahlström Collective Impact spread the message about World Children’s Day among their employees and external stakeholders. This year the importance of quality education and the right to play are in the focus, and all employees within the network are challenged to #makeyourmove and think about children’s right to education and play by reminiscing about a favorite childhood game.
