Organised by CINGO Civil Society Committee on the Rights of the Child with experts and thought leaders across Europe and the opportunity for live online discussion.
The following questions will be addressed in six parallel workshops and two concluding panel discussions. Each workshop starts with an introduction of the theme by a speaker [about 20 minutes] followed by an exchange of views and experiences among participants.
1/ How are the recommendations from UN CRC CG 14 and 20 implemented in the activities of family professionals?
2/ The case of young children: What elements are considered to evaluate BIC of toddlers and infants (under 5-year-old)?
3/ How to promote the rights and wellbeing of older children and adolescents experiencing the care system?
4/ How to organise the defence of children and what are their possibility of recourse and support in cases of violence against their needs?
5/ How to implement the participation of children in expressing their views.
6/ What kind of education and support for parents who are separating or whose child is in care?
