Each year, we have an ambassador to help us promote and celebrate National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day.
Some of our Children’s Day ambassadors in the past have included Patty Mills, Adam Goodes, Shelley Ware, Gail Mabo and "Nanna" Ningali Lawford-Wolf.
In 2020, our theme is We are the Elders of tomorrow, hear our voice
Our Elders are holders of traditional knowledge and wisdom, providing reassurance, comfort and hope.
This year we celebrate young Jedda, a Wurundjeri and Kalkadoon girl and Wurundjeri Elder Aunty Di, in our promotional ad and poster.
Hearing children’s voices today plays a crucial role in them growing up to being influential Elders and leaders of the future.
