Sofia Young People’s Report 2016

In December 2015 the Council of Europe put a call for expression of interest seeking support by NGOs and/or consultants in the organisation and follow-up of a child participation process in its high-level conference ''Reaching the Heights for the Rights of the Child” on the 5-6 April 2016 in Sofia, Bulgaria. 

The new Strategy for the Rights of the Child (2016-2021) was officially launched at the conference.

Working in partnership Eurochild, the National Network for Children (NNC) Bulgaria and Darren Bird (an International Child Rights Consultant), responded to the call with a proposal. 

This report gives an overview of how the young people participated in the Council of Europe Conference but also presents the groups’ views and conclusions of the themes and ideas discussed during the conference.
