Children on children's rights video
A little bit of light entertainment for you here, with this YouTube video filmed in a Danish school of children talking about children's rights. It's extremely touching and very funny. It was shown at the Amnesty International Children's Right's Network Conference on the 20th of November, to mark 20 years of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
