For the first time, children and young people facilitated discussions at the Eurochild Members’ Day to gather views on the Child Participation Strategy, which was formally endorsed the following day at the last Eurochild General Assembly in Brussels.
The Child Participation Strategy aims to engage children and young people directly to put children’s rights at the heart of Europe; give them a voice and build a community of child rights advocates. The Eurochild network has adopted this strategy which will see the development of national and European fora for children and young people to influence decisions that affect their lives and help organise events.
The strategy goes hand in hand with a Child Protection Policy ensuring all staff, members and partners fully embrace their responsibilities to protect children from harm. Eurochild members will, in the future, be expected to demonstrate compliance with Eurochild’s policy or to have in place their child protection policy respecting national legislation.
A poster explaining how children and young people participate in the Eurochild Conference 2016 has been generated in close collaboration with the Eurochild’ Communication team and the communication agency, Page in extremis.
Page in extremis is proud to have partaken in the creative development and the graphical production of the poster.
Page in extremis has extensive expertise in communication with sensitive issues. The communication agency creates and refreshes human-centered brands and develops percussive digital and classic media.
Since 1994, the broad experience of the Belgian communication agency has been extended to more than four hundred annual reports.
