Child with hoola hoop for Summer Shoutout
Join a movement of young people striving to end violence against children.

Summer Shoutout

Welcome to the Summer Shoutout

Over 1 billion children are affected by violence every year. And COVID-19 is putting a further 85 million at risk. Our It Takes a World campaign is uniting us all in action to end this injustice.

Young people are at the heart of It Takes a World - speaking out for change, working with peers, schools and communities and leading the action.

Refusing to be silenced by COVID-19, the virtual Summer Shoutout is a chance to gather as young people, share ideas and unite as a powerful movement.

Who’s it for?

Children and young people of all ages can join the Summer Shoutout. So don’t miss out! You’ll get to unite with others around the world, be inspired and make an impact!

This event will be in English and will have French subtitles.

When is it? 

Sept. 9, 2020 1 p.m. GMT

(An event for Spanish speakers will be in November, details to come)
