CHILD RIGHTS IN ACTION - CHILDREN AS HUMAN RIGHTS DEFENDERS

 

[Version française]

 

The theme


For this edition of Child Rights in Action we wanted to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the UN Child Rights Convention (UNCRC) and make ours the theme chosen by the UN Committee and Child Rights Connect: "Children as Human Rights Defenders".


30 years ago, acknowledging the endless acts of violence children encountered, the world set sail to defend children’s rights with the UNCRC. Today, the journey is far from being over and everyone is invited to continue this adventure! We are inviting you to get on board of our ship to explore together children’s vision on how to defend Human dignity and rights.

 

A nautical adventure


We will take the time to check in where we are and where we are coming from. This will allow to assess the current situation of children as Human Rights Defenders. Then, it will be necessary to know the obstacles ahead: storms, reefs, sea monsters populating the oceans and the manoeuvres needed to avoid them; meaning, the difficulties children meet to lead their projects and how to overcome these hurdles. 

Having a set course for everyone to become a Human Rights Defender, the workshops will allow the participants to leave with the skills they need to undertake their own voyage to defend Human Rights.
