13th European Forum on the rights of the child

Welcome to the online edition of the 13th European Forum on the rights of the child

Organised by the Directorate-General for Justice and Consumers, the European Forum on the rights of the child is an annual conference that provides a platform for dialogue between EU institutions and other stakeholders on the rights of the child.

This year, for the first time ever, the forum is going completely digital!

From 29/09 to 01/10, participants will enjoy an online, interactive event experience under the theme of this 13th edition: ‘Delivering for children: towards the European strategy on the rights of the child’. Highlights include a three-day conference featuring high-level sessions and interactive workshops as well as ice-breaking activities. Participants include children and young people, national authorities and policymakers, judicial and child protection practitioners, ombudspersons for children, independent experts, international and non-governmental organisations, academics, EU institutions and agencies.

We suggest that participants select and follow one workshop throughout the event as the discussions are planned as a continuum. 

Please note: all sessions are in English; no interpretation will be provided for this event.
