In 1990 there was a big international meeting on children called the World Summit on Children.
The governments of the world all agreed on certain goals they would try and achieve for children.
- Children's health
- Getting more kids into schools
- Stopping child poverty
The Special Session on Children in 2002 looked at what had happened since 1990 to see if these goals had been met.
It also set some goals for the next 10 years.
