Our actions

Whether it is to promote the importance of respecting the rights of children in our society, to promote our mission to prevent violence against children or to be actively involved in the autonomous community action movement, ESPACE is active in the community!

Our implications

National Child Day

On November 20th 1989, the United Nations adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which followed the Declaration on the Rights of the Child ratified on November 20th 1959. National Child Day has been celebrated in Canada since 1993 and aims to celebrate children as actors in their own lives and in their communities and as active citizens who can and should contribute meaningfully to making decisions.

Each year, in order to mark this day and promote the importance of respecting children’s rights, ESPACE organizes or co-organizes special activities as part of National Child Day (NCD).

The blue ribbon

Wearing the blue ribbon is an action put forward by the ROEQ, encouraging people to show their support for the importance of protecting children’s rights and reminding people that children must be considered in all political, social and economic decisions. The color blue was chosen because it is linked to peace and freedom.

“Children’s rights must be taken into account in all political, social and economic decisions.”
