#CovidUnder19 Joint Statement asking for meaningful child participation

Eurochild endorses statement co-authored by children and adults involved in the #CovidUnder19 initiative

The High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) 2022 opens a new avenue as we look forward to reaching the halfway point of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The HLPF is the central United Nations platform for the follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the global level. 

As a community of children, young people and civil society organisations, we believe that meaningful child and youth participation must be a cornerstone of pandemic recovery and response.

While some notable progress has been made, more concerted efforts need to be taken collectively to ensure children and young people’s voices are heard as we look ahead towards building back better from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) while advancing the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
