On the 14th of December 1954, the United Nations General Assembly recommended that countries celebrate a Universal Children's Day. The date 20 November marks the day on which the assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child. On 20 November 1959 they adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Thus today, the IJF celebrates the #WorldChildrens also known as the Universal Children's Day.

We wish a happy #WorldChildrensDay 2020 to our future generation of judoka! Have fun and enjoy the beauty of our sport to build a better society.
