The Rights of the Child where you live

Study the rights of the child and whether these rights are respected where you live. Is there anything you’d like to change? What responsibilities are attached to the rights?

Use discussions, creative exercises and reflection to help the children explore their everyday life and surroundings. Work in groups or pairs, and discuss how children are treated in your community and country.

Use the basic ideas of the United Nation’s Convention on the Rights of the Child as a starting point.
  • No child should be discriminated against.
  • The priority must always be what is in the child’s best interests.
  • Every child has the right to life and development.
  • Every child has the right to share their opinion and adults must listen.
