Crises have seemed ever-present globally over recent years, from the COVID-19 pandemic to climate change. Both of these crises show what can be done collectively to uphold children’s rights, should there be global attention and will. They also highlight extreme inequalities, their impacts and the precarity of human rights in times of crisis. This webinar will explore how to learn from these and other crises, to ‘build back better’ in relation to children’s human rights.
The webinar will include presentations from Prof. Philip D. Jaffé, who is a member of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, and young people from #CovidUnder19, an initiative aimed to foster intergenerational partnerships between children, young people and adult members of the children’s rights community to develop evidence-based advocacy to uphold children’s rights in pandemic recovery and response. After the presentations, we will host an interactive panel with the speakers and others, providing an opportunity for questions and discussion.
The public webinar will be from 1.30-2.30.
