The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) was adopted 30 years ago. Significant progress has been made in getting children into schools and lifting them out of poverty. But progress has not been even or fair. Participants will evaluate the implementation of CRC, particularly the right of the child to be heard. Children's increased involvement on matters that concern them can reduce inequalities. Participants will share good practices and recommend how to better involve children in decision-making processes and recognise them as active citizens for inclusive societies and shapers of our future. Children will address inequalities and the ways their participation at local level, at home or school reduces inequalities and positively impacts their journey towards adulthood.
