1979 is the United Nations International Year of the Child. The Federal Government, State Governments and municipal councils have already appointed I.Y.C. Committees. Judging by the first leaflets produced by the Victorian Government's I.Y.C. Committee, these committees will tend to confine "Children's Year" to sentimental and trivial activities. But, similarly to International Women's Year (I.W.Y.) 1975 the campaign around "Children's Year" is beginning to have a life of its own. All sorts of community groups are initiating their own plans for strengthening and extending their activities during Children's Year and new links between organisations are developing.
