Meetings & Trainings on the Rights of the Child
The Child Rights Team has facilitated a series of meetings and trainings since the end of summer.
At first the children volunteers were trained on the rights of the child and in other topics such as bullying and domestic/sexual abuse.
After the training sessions, they designed their own initiatives in order to celebrate the 30 years anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child on the 20th of November in 2019. The children volunteers organized many meetings with decision makers and stakeholders and they included them in their Campaign which they named 302010.
The Child Rights Team tried to cover all the violations of child rights in Greece.
So, they focused on the following main categories:
1. Sexual abuse
2. Domestic abuse/neglect
4. Environmental crisis
5. Children in migration
6. Gender equality and equality among children of different sexual orientation
7. Exclusion from education/healthcare/society
At the same time, after long meetings and discussions, the children volunteers designed their own proposals to defend child rights in Greece which they discussed with various experts on the 19th & 20th of October 2019
Finally, they planned an event in the Ministry of Education at the 20th of November 2019 to celebrate the anniversary of the 30 years of the CRC and to present their proposals to other students.
