On 20 November 2014, the United Nations General Assembly High-Level Meeting on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child was held at United Nations Headquarters (UNHQ). The Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), the world’s most endorsed human rights treaty, sets out the civil, political, economic, social, health and cultural rights of children. The meeting brought together participants to review progress achieved for children since the treaty’s adoption by the General Assembly in 1989; to identify key challenges to realizing children’s rights; and to examine best ways to address these challenges as the international community moves into the next 25 years. President of the 69th Session of the United Nations General Assembly Sam Kahamba Kutesa and UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake were among the key speakers. UNICEF unveiled its #IMAGINE project and launched a special edition of its ‘State of the World’s Children’ flagship report during the event. This first-ever fully digital, interactive edition of the publication, entitled ‘Reimagine the future: Innovation for every child’, highlights innovations that are already improving lives in countries around the world and includes multimedia and interactive content that invites readers to share their own ideas and innovations. The #IMAGINE Project, through a new interactive digital experience, will allow everyday people to use an application to record their own version of ‘Imagine’, John Lennon’s iconic anthem of hope and peace, alongside their favourite stars, in what UNICEF hopes will be the largest-ever global singalong. The launches were held as part of CRC twenty-fifth anniversary celebrations.

聯合國兒童基金會執行主任安東尼‧雷克在慶祝《兒童權利公約》通過25周年的聯合國大會高級特別會議上發表講話。

紐約/香港,2015925今天的決議標誌着一個歷程的結束,與另一個新歷程的開始。這推動我們努力將承諾化作實際的行動。

「毋庸置疑的是,我們將會用統計數據來衡量我們已取得的成就,但歸根究底,我們最終想讓每一名兒童都能擺脫貧困、每一名母親都能安全分娩、每一名女孩都不會因早婚而失去她的童年。」

「透過幫助目前最弱勢的兒童,讓他們在生活中享有公平待遇,將來就可以幫助他們擺脫極端貧窮的束縛。」

背景

可持續發展目標代表着一項宏大的全球計劃,旨在消除極端貧窮、促進全民享有優質教育和終生學習機會、保護地球,促進和平及共融社會。這些目標的制訂,是基於我們對兒童許下消除貧困、營養、衞生、教育、供水及環境衞生及性別平等的承諾。這些範疇亦涵蓋於此前制訂的千禧發展目標之中。更重要的是,可持續發展目標亦就在兒童保護、早期幼兒教育和減少不平等方面訂立新目標。
