Theme: Just Press Play

Doha, Ad Dawḩah

Today, you are joining youth in more than 100 cities across the world to commemorate United Nations Universal Children’s Day. Today, the rest of the world (you know, those that are no longer ‘youth’) recognizes everything that is at the heart of being youthful- that instinct to be inspired by what is around you, to inspire others, and most of all, to dream.

Today, you will speak to youth that are doing amazing things right here in Qatar in their schools, in their communities, and in their own lives. As if meeting all these amazing youth in Qatar was not enough of a treat, you will also hear from inspirational people with a unique message.

What is this message?

Well, it’s actually quite simple. You see, when you play, you learn. When you learn, you build. When you build, you share. When you share, you get to play some more.

So… JUST PRESS PLAY. What do you have to lose? (hint: the answer is… nothing!)

We hope you have a ton of fun today.
