17 October International Poster

As part of the 30th anniversary of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child, the theme chosen by the UN to celebrate 17 October 2019 is:

“ACTING TOGETHER to empower children, their families and communities to end poverty.”

The work of the Irish 17 October Committee is regularly supported by
the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection and its
Public Awareness Funding to promote awareness of the UN
International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. Since 2014, the
Public Awareness Fund supports the networking between various
initiatives at the occasion of the observance of the UN Day.
