Día de Acción Regional por la Educación

In the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, celebrated on November 20, we invite all to celebrate a Regional Action Day for Education.

This time in the political agenda is especially relevant, considering that the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC) called the signatory States of the Convention to present renewed promises and clear commitments to the accomplishment of this treaty, setting the deadline on November 20. In our region, ultil now only Chile and Ecuador responded. UNICEF also called the States for the same reason.

In this context, on November 20 and beyond, we would like to invite you to join the following lines of action:

Messages to and conversations with authorities

Sending messages and letters to your government or talking to authorities in your country, urging them to respond to CRC and UNICEF’s calls. These communications may highlight demands and recommendations on education and other rights determined by the Convention (in the cases of Chile and Ecuador it would be important to check on what was presented and advocate for it, especially confronting the commitments made by governments to reality);

Tweeting for the right to education

Join us on November 20 for a 11am, 4pm and 9pm (GMT-3) Twitter mobilization for the right to education: use the tag #TheEducationWeNeed to share messages on the right to education at one of these hours on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram; label CLADE (@redclade on Facebook and Twitter; @red.clade on Instagram)..
