To celebrate this year’s World Children’s Day and the 32nd anniversary of the adoption of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) by the UN General Assembly, Eurochild is hosting a webinar “Education – A gateway to well-being for all children: How the school community can (re)build social & emotional well-being”. The webinar will focus on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted children’s rights to education and their right to be informed about their rights (Article 28 & 42 of the UNCRC respectively). Eurochild will open a discussion on the impact on children in vulnerable situations, such as children living in poverty, children from the Roma community, children in alternative care, children with disabilities, children with a migration background, and children living in precarious family situations.
The webinar will take place on 18 November 2021 from 14.30-16.00 CET. During the webinar attendees will hear from political representatives, policymakers, school leaders, civil society organisations and teachers to share innovative education practices that offer solutions to the devastating impact of COVID-19 on children’s rights to education and fair access to learning.
