If you look around today, you might see some unusual tube roundels, as it’s World Children’s Day, and London school children have their own roundels on display in selected tube stations.

In addition to the tube roundel, they are writing one-off ‘Thought of the Day’ whiteboard messages and taking over some tannoy messages.

The new artwork is located at King’s Cross, Bond Street, Green Park, London Bridge and Victoria underground stations as well as West Croydon, Vauxhall and North Greenwich bus stations, portrays children’s favourite things about transport in the capital and places children right at the heart of London’s transport system.

This year’s World Children’s Day is special because it marks the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the human rights treaty that grants all children a set of rights.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

The ianVisits website has been running now for just over a decade, initially as a news blog, later adding the events listings guide to the offbeat and geeky events in London.

Advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It’s very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of the ianVisits website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what IanVisits provides, then please support the website here.

Thank you
