In November 2023 and for the fourth year running, the Eurovision Kids Friendship campaign will bring kids together to celebrate inclusion and friendship. Children from all over Europe will take part in a dance symbolizing inclusion and friendship, facilitated by their respective public broadcasters.
The common song produced by NRK “Sveve Høyt” (“We’re flying”) will be adapted, translated and produced by all participating broadcasters in their own language. The core message of the song this year is that every person matters and has a key role in society: “We all belong”.

The #SayHi campaign builds on the successful experiences of EBU Members NRK and VRT, who for several years have been promoting positive messages for children with local campaigns around friendship and inclusion.
In 2022, the EBU has combined efforts to make this experience happen on an international level.
The aim of the campaign is to create positive companionship that includes everyone and reduces children’s feeling of loneliness while appreciating the diversity and differences in all people.
The #SayHi campaign is an important moment for children to join together in a common dance to promote friendship and inclusion – particularly important after the isolating effects of the worldwide pandemic and its impact on kids worldwide.
On this occasion, participating broadcasters will publish their official video clips and posting on social media using the hashtags #SayHi and #WeArePeace, in order to emphasis a message of peace and solidarity.
