Children’s rights are central to all aspects of UNICEF’s work, including education, and we use the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) as a framework for our activities.

UNICEF Ireland aims to promote children’s rights in schools by supporting schools to ensure that rights are embedded in their ethos and policy-making; and by offering resources and activities to ensure that children and young people can learn about children’s rights in the classroom and beyond. Please email for further information.

As the world’s largest children’s organisation, UNICEF is committed to ensuring that all children everywhere know their rights.

We have developed a range of interactive teaching resources for children aged 4-17. These workshops support teachers to lead discussions and activities on a range of topics including children’s rights, poverty, gender inequality, climate change, and the United Nations Global Goals on Sustainable Development.

Workshops are tailored to suit the classroom but can be adjusted to suit a range of more informal learning environments. Students will be both informed and inspired to consider their role in making the world a better place for children and their families everywhere.
