The World's Children's Prize (WCP) is a unique education programme for children, who work for children's rights and to achieve a more compassionate world. Since the programme was founded in 2000, 34.8 million children — including more than half a million in Sweden — have been involved and have learnt about children's rights, democracy and global friendship.
60,000 schools (of which 1,710 are in Sweden) in 108 countries act as Global Friend schools for the World's Children's Prize.
Children vote for the winner of the prestigious prize in recognition of efforts to promote children's rights via the Global Vote.
H.M. The Queen, together with Nelson Mandela and Aung San Suu Kyi, among others, is a patron of the World's Children's Prize.
