SOT, David Beckham, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador: "As leaders, as public figures, as parents and of course as human beings, we must all do more to protect children's dreams, because the future doesn't belong to us, it belongs to children."
W/S Beckham speaking
SOT, David Beckham, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador: "Young people are calling for a planet that can support them and future generations, where our resources are sustainable, and our environment is protected. And they are calling for peace, for an end to violence, an end to war, an end to the political and cultural divisions that destroy communities, tear families apart and endanger children's life in every single day."

SOT, Millie Bobby Brown, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador: "I am convinced that social media doesn't have to be a place of fear, bullying and harassment. It can bring people together. It can be a place of love and support. Somewhere in the world right now, a teenager girl is being bullied online. She is scared, she's vulnerable, she feels alone. My message to her is this: you are not alone, there are people who care about you and there are people who would listen if you reach out for help."
W/S Brown speaking
SOT, Millie Bobby Brown, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador: "Young people like her [Greta Thunberg] are shouting for the world leaders to hear, to listen and to act. Every one of you here today can be the loud speaker that turns our voices into real change, into policies, programmes, laws and investments that keep children safe, that makes our world a better, healthier, stronger place for all."

SOT, Henrietta Fore, Executive Director of United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF): "The best pathway to a more sustainable future for all is to invest in all children. Today, as we look forward to progress in the next 30 years, let's recommit to child rights, let's make these rights real in programmes, policies and services in every community in every country around the world."

Former football player David Beckham and Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown spoke at the United Nations headquarters in New York City on Wednesday, demanding action to protect children's rights.
"Young people are calling for a planet that can support them and future generations, where our resources are sustainable, and our environment is protected," Beckham said. "And they are calling for peace, for an end to violence, an end to war, an end to the political and cultural divisions that destroy communities, tear families apart and endanger children's life in every single day."
The stars, both of which are UNICEF goodwill ambassadors, were speaking in commemoration of World Children's Day.
"Young people like her [Greta Thunberg] are shouting for the world leaders to hear, to listen and to act. Every one of you here today can be the loud speaker that turns our voices into real change, into policies, programmes, laws and investments that keep children safe, that makes our world a better, healthier, stronger place for all," said Brown, who became the youngest UNICEF goodwill ambassador ever in 2018.
