If you are a trainer or organization, you can learn more about how to do ssupport the movementTake the Play Their Way Pledge and help children have a voice, choice and journey to give them a positive experience.
While we celebrate putting children and their rights at the center, we also want to highlight something #iwillweek – a movement that supports children and young people to make positive changes on the issues that affect their lives, their communities and society at large.
#iwill has developed a Power of Youth Charter – a community initiative that currently has over 200 organizations signed up to demonstrate their commitment to empowering young people.
In addition, we focus on the voices of young people and want to anchor these in order to improve the opportunities for children and young people to exercise and to encourage more children to be physically active by offering a range that meets their needs.
This is a new and wide-ranging area for us to work on, but we believe it could have a positive impact on supporting more children and young people to take part in and enjoy physical activity.
We will be supported by our own innovation team as well as external organization The Innovation Unit and together we will test different approaches to see what role we can play in embedding the youth voice across the sector and within our own organisation.
To support this audience, we want and must put the voices of young people at the center of our work.
We learn from organizations that already work this way, collect best practices and learn from their challenges.
This first-hand knowledge will help us engage in the industry – because although World Children’s Day only lasts one day, we want to encourage individuals and organizations to think about and advocate for the wellbeing of children in sport and physical activity Activity is protected, their rights taken into account and their voices heard.
Every day of the year.
