Universal Children’s Day Promotes Global Awareness

Early Lingo is celebrating Universal Children’s Day on November 20th in our quest to promote bilingualism and global awareness.

Universal Children’s Day was created on December 14, 1954 by the UN to support international friendship and understanding between children worldwide. It’s a great opportunity to introduce your child to another language and culture and to celebrate the differences in our customs. Our children are living in a world that is more connected than ever before and we need to help our kids become good Young Global Citizens.

WHY CELEBRATING LANGUAGES AND CULTURES OF CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD IS IMPORTANT:

  • Teaching children about global cultures and peoples and providing them with early contact reduces stereotypes and racial prejudice.
  • It is critical that our future generation is bilingual and globally aware so that they can succeed in the global marketplace and participate in our increasingly interdependent world.
  • Our future generations of Young Global Citizens can promote peace in their acceptance of different people, language and cultures, despite conflict today.
  • The United States is and always has been a make up of diverse cultures and backgrounds.
  • Language is the ultimate conduit to compassion, respect and globalism.
  • Speaking another language allows a child to connect with all aspects of the culture.

How will you celebrate with your child?
