Council of Europe proposes four-year plan for children’s rights
The Council of Europe adopted a new strategy to implement fundamental standards to protect and promote children’s rights. The strategy will focus on four main objectives: promoting child-friendly services and systems, eliminating all forms of violence against children, guaranteeing the rights of children in vulnerable situations, and promoting child participation. The Congress will continue its efforts towards an effective implementation of the Strategy by local authorities. It contributes in particular to developing local and regional dimensions of the ONE in FIVE Campaign to fight sexual violence against children.
