Project: Children’s right to participation

The project applied has a goal, which is to work together for better conditions, increased engagement in political issues, and the will to participate in decision-making processes among children and youths in our different municipalities. Another goal is to deepen the knowledge about The Convention on the Rights of the Child ( CRC) among the staff of The Children and Education board and the Children and Education administration in different levels in our municipalities.

To fulfill the goals in our respective municipalities, we can see a need to educate our staff about CRC and how to in an effective way work with these questions to reach an increased knowledge about the Right of the Child and in the long run reach a wider engagement among our youths in democratic issues.
