Volunteers in 85 countries will hold free workshops to equip children and their adults with the social and emotional skill required to bring children's rights to action.

The Emotional Intelligence for Children's Day celebration, or #EQChildrensDay, will increase awareness of the essential role that emotional intelligence plays in our children's well-being, in our relationships with them; and in turn, in their capacity to make a positive difference in the world.

Three weeks, three themes:

Starting on November 1, 2016, each week leading up to Universal Children's Day, participants will get EQ kits with resources, tools, and tips to practice emotional intelligence around three essential themes:

  • EQ for Self Awareness
  • EQ for Relationships
  • EQ for Our World

Then, on Nov 20, participants will be invited to the 11:20/11:20 celebration — with a 24-hour feed of sharing pictures, stories, feelings — focused on children. For more information on emotional intelligence and the #EQChildrensDay campaign, see http://www.6seconds.org

The United Nations declared Universal Children's Day to encourage societies to support the wellbeing of children. November 20th is the anniversary of the signing of Convention on the Rights of the Child, the most widely-signed human rights legislation in the history of the world.

The campaign includes …Tools for emotional intelligence

In addition to the free workshops, volunteers in the project will receive downloadable free games, activity guides and conversation starters for adults and children to practice emotional intelligence.

Through a special page on Crowdrise.com, organizations focused on the well being of children will be able to raise funds to increase emotional intelligence skills for their staff members and the children they serve. This will multiply the power of EQ #ChildrensDay allowing efforts to sustain.
