On 17-18 June H.E Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, President Emeritus, Malta and newly elected Eurochild President took office and chaired her first Eurochild Management Board meeting in Brussels.

 

The Management Board also met with the Eurochild secretariat to discuss the next steps for a stronger network that promotes the rights and well-being of children. Eurochild is mid-way in its current  2019-2021 Strategic Plan. Based on on-going feedback from the membership, the Board and Secretariat began planning Eurochild’s work programme for 2020. They evaluated the work done so far, and began planning the future to ensure that children will effectively be at the heart of European policies.

In a recent letter, H.E. Coleiro Preca highlighted the value of the Eurochild network: “One of the beautiful things which distinguishes Eurochild in Brussels, in Europe, and in the world is the sense of togetherness which exists amongst all of our members. I have always been a firm believer of the immense benefits of working together – as working together towards a common goal is the right way to reach the set targets.” 

The Eurochild membership is constantly growing, with almost 200 members across Europe.
