Kids should know their rights

 

We’re launching a campaign today for children to design a poster to that depicts their rights.

The right of the child to protection” competition is open to children and adolescents between the ages of 10 and 18 and asks them to design a poster on the right of children to protection in the European Union. These rights are enshrined in the Charter of Fundamental rights and the UN Charter on the Rights of the Child and include:

  • such protection and care as is necessary for their well-being.
  • expressing their views freely.
  • Having the child’s best interests as a primary consideration.
  • maintaining on a regular basis a personal relationship and direct contact with both his or her parents, unless that is contrary to his or her interests.

 

The deadline for submitting posters is 31 October of this year and winners will be announced on 20 November, the International Day of the Rights of the Child.

 

If you’re interested in getting involved, then send an e-mail to uk@europayouth.eu
