Go Blue for World Children’s Day!
 Today is the launch our Child Friendly Cardiff Strategy to coincide with World Children’s Day. Creating a child friendly city and communities is about a genuine and enduring commitment to children’s rights. It’s about creating and sustaining places where the voices, needs, priorities and rights of children are an integral part of public policies, programmes and decisions. The launch of #ChildFriendlyCDF will take place later today at City Hall – which will be lit up blue to celebrate World Children’s Day. Attendees will include eight Rights Respecting Schools in Cardiff with Cabinet Member for Education, Employment & Skills and Deputy Leader Cllr Sarah Merry, Director of Education Nick Batchelar and Chair of Health Board Maria Battle speaking at the event. The event will also feature a special performance from schools of a self-penned song.
