Children are experts in their own lives. It is essential that they participate in decisions that affect them. Eurochild wants to lead by example and is committed to supporting the direct involvement of children and young people in our work through:
Eurochild also supports others, including the European Commission, the Council of Europe and the European Fundamental Rights Agency to engage directly with children.

NEFs offer a platform for children to discuss issues of concern in their country and to bring these issues to the attention of European policy makers.
In 2017 we established the Eurochild Children’s Council (ECC), bringing together 12 children from different countries around Europe between the age of 10 and 18. The children actively contribute to our events and activities, they advise the network on how to improve our impact, they participate in our advocacy on children’s rights. The ECC is renewed every 2 years.
