The webinar will be dedicated to the concept of the Rights of the Child, its understanding and its application in everyday work of organizations and individuals who work with children. How do we as professionals, experts, and activists integrate an approach based on children's rights into our work; how do we ensure that our work is consistent and based on the Rights of the Child, on the basic principles of the Convention on the Rights of the Child? We will raise issues on the relationships between child rights, human rights, gender equality, the situation of children from vulnerable groups (children with disabilities, Roma children), and discrimination. How much do we recognize and how do we integrate specific approaches - gender aspect, antidiscrimination, and human rights in the work of our organizations?
