Merge celebrates World Children’s Day at Muscat International Airport!

 |  20 November 2019

Chris is taking part in UNICEF Oman’s ‘Kids Take Over’ activitities today at Muscat International Airport  in celebration of World Children’s Day! 

World Children’s Day is celebrated every year on November 20th to mark the anniversary of the ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, and this year is a milestone because it marks 30 years since the ratification. 

To celebrate, UNICEF offices around the world arrange ‘Kids Take Over’ activities, where children ‘take over’ different positions to put them at the centre of the agenda and highlight their rights. UNICEF Oman is doing takeover activities with Oman Airports. 37 children are taking over a number of positions across all airport operations. Also all airport staff will be wearing blue as a part of the ‘GoBlue’ campaign, another annual campaign that accompanies World Children’s Day. 

Chris will be live on air from 12 to join in all the fun!
