Satyarthi spoke to IPS in an exclusive interview on the eve of Fair Share for Children Summit, a global virtual conference, hosted by Laureates and Leaders for Children, which is founded by Satyarthi.

The summit, which takes place from Sept. 9-10, brings together Nobel laureates, including the Dalai LamaTawakkol KarmanProfessor Jody Williams and leading international figures and heads of United Nations agencies to demand a fair share for the world's most marginalised children during and beyond COVID-19.

This fair share, the Laureates and Leaders for Children say, translates to 20 percent of the COVID-19 response for the poorest 20 percent of humanity and amounts to $1 trillion.

Watch as Satyarthi outlines just what the money will be spent on.
