Report "Our Europe, Our Rights, Our Future"

Children's and young people's contribution to the new EU Strategy on the Rights of the Child and the Child Guarantee

On 9 December 2019, Nkosilathi Nyathi, a youth activist from Zimbabwe, participates in a panel discussion during the High-level Event on Climate Change and Children Rights, part of the 2019 UN Climate Change Conference (COP 25) in Madrid, Spain.


The perspectives and priorities of more than 10,000 children and young people, from within and outside the European Union (EU), are expressed powerfully throughout this report.

In preparing for the new EU Strategy on the Rights of the Child 2021 - 2024, the European Commission decided to set a new standard by inviting children living in Europe and beyond to share their views and influence how the strategy would be shaped and what topics it would prioritize. To this end, the European Commission called on five child rights organizations - ChildFund Alliance, Eurochild, Save the Children, UNICEF and World Vision - to facilitate consultations with children across Europe and beyond, based on their collective experience of working with millions of children worldwide, evidence, research, and policies.
