DGD 2020: Children’s Rights and Alternative Care, Postponed to 2021
Given the current situation with the spread of COVID-19, the Committee on the Rights of the Child has decided that the 2020 Day of General Discussion on Children’s Rights in Alternative Care”, scheduled to take place on 18 September 2020, will be postponed to 2021. More information will be provided later. Read more here.
The Committee has announced that the topic of the next Day of General Discussion is children in alternative care. The proposal was submitted by a group of organisations led by Lumos.
Child Rights Connect is currently mobilizing its members and partners who have an interest in being involved in the DGD to work in a broad coalition in order to achieve a meaningful DGD, as well as to ensure the full and meaningful participation of children throughout the process.
Any organisations who are interested in being involved in coordinating the DGD, please contact: Caroline Rose, Lumos [email protected]
