Pop-Up Festival UNICEF World Children’s Day

I am hosting free POP-UP Festivals to celebrate World Children’s Day,  with UNICEF, allies in 150+ countries are collaborating to bring more emotional intelligence awareness and resources to children and the adults who support them.

I am passionate about this since it teaches skills like empathy, friendship, optimism, goal setting & emotional literacy through play-based activities. My goal is to create awareness and dialogue about mental health in a fun envirnoment. Through POP-UP Festival, kids learn more about their feelings and develop better strategies to help manage stress and isolation. EQ is a set of learnable, measurable skills. Thats why practicing skills of EQ is essential to create a more emotionally intelligent world and I want you to join me be part of it!

What is World Children’s day?

The United Nations declared 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 purpose of the day, according to the U.N. is:

“Let us promote and celebrate children’s rights on the Universal Children’s Day, and continuously build up a living-friendly environment for children in the world through dialogue and actions.”

It’s also the date of the signing of the Declaration on the Rights of the Child (1959). In part, this Declaration was a response to the atrocities of WWII, and the growing recognition that children require special protection

Why hold a Pop-up Festival?

It’s the most important work there is. If we can raise awareness, inspire hope, and fuel passion for young people to develop the skills for building the future… and adults with the skills to support them… everything is possible. To connect. To grow. To nourish one another in mind and heart as well as in body.

The work for a just and sustainable world is a long marathon. It’s literally been thousands of years in the making. We’re not going to solve these problems today, so while many people work tirelessly against the crashing waves of inhumanity, we are also planting the seeds for tomorrow. Reminding children and families what it means for be fully human. The the real goal isn’t just a cessation of inhumanity, but a flourish of the best in us.

My 3 EQ Mini Kits I choose to Host At  POP EQ Festival Event I’m Hosting!

Kind or Unkind

Kindness can be deeper than “please” and “thank you.” But it can be confusing sometimes when if actions are mistaken. How can we show kindness? How can we be clear about our intentions to do good for others?

Friendship Medal

At this station, you’ll practice showing appreciation of each other and contribute to others feeling good about themselves.

Emotion Garden

We don’t always appreciate the special people in our lives. Let’s think about one special person and pay attention to the feelings they share with us. We can show them gratitude and tell them how much care.
