Joint EU-Council of Europe conference on children and youth participation

FRA took part in the Council of Europe-EU Joint Child Participation4Europe project conference.

The event focused on building a Europe for and with children. FRA referenced its child rights material such as its updated child rights legal handbook.

It also referred to its child-friendly web pages.

In addition, FRA gave examples of how it meaningfully engages with young people through its Fundamental Rights Dialogues. This allows young people share their concerns and ideas. This in turn helps set the agenda of the Agency’s regular Fundamental Rights Forum.

The conference ran from 23 to 25 May in Cork.
