Children’s Proclamation

Plaça de Sant Jaume
Friday 10, at 10.00 am

The big moment is here. Plaça de Sant Jaume is packed with people waiting to hear the children of Barcelona. Today, the kids stand up and actively take part and have their say in the festival.

Over the last few months, the city's 3rd to 6th year primary school pupils have been working hard to reflect on their rights, the resources they have, the kind of city they would like to live in and their commitment to making it a reality. In reality, the Children’s Speech is an activity that aims to promote and disseminate the rights of children, introduce them to citizen participation and teach them to be co-responsible.

The proclamation will be attended by the Mayor of Barcelona and members of the City Council. Subsequently, at around 10:15 am, there will be a performance by the group Ambauka.

The following schools took part in this edition:

Escola Mediterrània, Mare del Diví Pastor, Escola Sagrat Cor Esclaves, Institut Escola Sicília, Escola Pau Vila, Escola Solc, Escola Tres Fonts de les Corts, Escola Nausica, Escola Projecte, Escola Costa i Llobera, Escola Nou Patufet, Escola Josep Maria de Sagarra, EE Mare de Déu de Montserrat, Escola Els Pins, Institut Escola El Molí, Escola Marta Mata, Escola Mercè Rodoreda, Escola Turó Blau, Escola Doctor Ferran i Clua, Escola Concepció Arenal i Escola Dovella.
