To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child we screened ‘Demain est à nous’.
Children are fighting for their beliefs with strength and courage, and they are making a difference. Human exploitation, child labour, forced marriages, environmental destruction, extreme poverty… they are committed on many fronts.
From India to Peru, from Bolivia to Guinea, from France to the United States, Director Gilles de Maistre takes us to meet children from around the world and fighting for a better future in this new and uplifting documentary coming soon to the big screen.
The screening was followed by a discussion on the topic: Can children really change the world?
- Ms. Sokhna Gueye, Child rights activist in Senegal. Action officer at the Youth International Council of Terre des Hommes Suisse
- Mr. Philip Jaffé, Member of the Committee on the Rights of the Child
- Moderator: Mr. Rhéal LeBlanc, Chief, Press and External Relations Section, UN Information Service
