Child Talks 2020 – A Day in my Life

Child Talks is an annual event marking World Children's Day that features a number of children and young people (up to 18 years) sharing important stories about their lives, which highlight an issue that's important to them and children's rights.

This year’s theme is ‘A Day in my Life’ and could include anything that impacts you.

Past speakers have spoken passionately on a range of issues such as climate change, healthcare, prejudice and education.

You don’t need any experience in public speaking to take part in this year’s event. If selected, you’ll take part in a series of group workshops and one on one sessions to help you develop your talk. Then in November, you’ll share your story at a special live event hosted by the Ombudsman for Children’s Office to mark World Children’s Day 2020.
