Forum – Rights of Children and Youth

by:

What did we do

This event took place in 2019 and 2020 in different formats, due the context that we are living (COVID-19 pandemic). In both years several initiatives took place in order to raise awareness and increase the commitment of different stakeholders such as schools, municipality, civic society organizations (CSO) to promote participation of children and young people in the life of the community as an essential element for the exercise of citizenship and for the development of a sense of belonging.
Specialists, educators, municipality officers from various areas of intervention were involved, and together with the children and youth of Cascais, created spaces for dialogue, reflection and analysis of their rights, needs and interests.
