The Laureates and Leaders for Children Summit, New Delhi

'Let's globalise compassion!'

With this assertion, Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi, urges the world to come together to show their commitment and resolve to fight the abuse and exploitation of millions of children across the world. With millions of children still trapped in slavery, sexual abuse, extreme conditions with their basic rights denied and as victims of other worst forms of exploitation, it is needed that the we, as global citizens of the world, come together and be the voice of these children.

For the first time ever, Nobel Laureates and World Leaders are coming together on one platform to be this voice, for the Laureates and Leaders for Children Summit 2016 in New Delhi. This moral platform will be prodigious and will provide unparalleled strength to the efforts for protection of children across the world.

In a unique and unprecedented gathering of Nobel Laureates and Leaders from around the world, the Laureates and Leaders for Children Summit 2016, New Delhi is convened with one overarching goal: to build a strong moral platform for a child-friendly world by globalising compassion for ending trafficking especially its worst forms like sexual exploitation and slavery everywhere.

Convened by Mr Kailash Satyarthi Nobel Peace Prize 2014 for his “struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education”, the Summit is designed to tap into the enormous intellectual and moral power, experience, resilience and passion of the world’s established thought leaders to focus on the world’s most deprived children. Bringing together the collective leadership of approximately 25 laureates and leaders, young people and over 150 eminent personalities from various walks of life – academia, business, civil society, sports, arts and culture – the Summit will call the world to urgent action to allow children to remain children, all over the world.

To be held at the Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi, the Summit will be followed by the flagging off of the historic '100 million for 100 million' campaign to mobilise youth from across the world to stand up and take action for the children trapped in the vicious cycle of abuse and exploitation. The President of India, HE Pranab Mukhejee will flag off the campaign in the presence of thousands of children and youth along with these Laureates and Leaders.
