A Special Session of the United Nations General Assembly dedicated to the children and adolescents of the world will be held September 19–21 at the United Nations in New York. A follow-up to the 1990 World Summit for Children, it will report on areas of progress as well as those where more work is needed, and will outline plans for the future.

At the 1990 meeting, 71 heads of state and government, and other leaders signed the World Declaration on Survival, Protection, and Development of Children. They also agreed to help improve living conditions, reduce sickness, allow more children to be educated, provide better sanitation and more food, and protect children from danger.
