Celebrating Childhood

A Journey to end Violence Against Children

image of Celebrating Childhood

A book about what ending violence against children takes, means and brings. It’s a celebration of childhood and a manifesto for a world where children can grow with dignity and free from violence. Celebrating the tenth anniversary of the United Nations Study on Violence against children, this book gathers inspiring testimonies of people whose talent and time are bringing us closer to a world of non-violence for all children. It shows that violence is not an inevitable fate and that positive change is happening. By focusing on concrete and diverse examples of how personal commitment can transform the world, we aim to unleash the same potential in many other people, inviting and inspiring them to get engaged, to use their time and talent and actively contribute to achieve zero violence against children by 2030.



Nostalgic future

Nostalgia is the word to describe a desire for a world that has existed in the past. I do not think the past is better or more ideal than the present because we are still experiencing a world with violence, poverty and war. Yet we humans continue to dream about nostalgia. I think this is because there are important things we are losing as time passes. I use the words “Nostalgic Future” to describe a world where we can access this ideal form of nostalgia in the future.
