Children’s Rights Are Better Understood In Political And Public Life

Eurochild wants to see greater recognition and understanding of children’s rights in the political and public domains, both at EU and national levels. Children can’t vote, but they have a key stake in Europe’s future. Realising children’s rights means to acknowledge and strengthen the role children have in shaping the world they live in.

Eurochild works with the EU institutions to ensure that children’s rights are visible in different policy portfolios. We contribute to crucial policy frameworks such as the EU strategy on the rights of the child and the EU Action Plan for the Pillar of Social Rights. We work together with our members to ensure recognition and respect for children’s rights at national level.
