ENYA to discuss on their turn how to strengthen the Protection and Promotion of the rights of children in Alternative Care

As part of the ENYA (European Network of Young Advisors) child participation project 2024, children and young people from across Europe have been working on the ENOC annual theme: “The Protection and Promotion of the Rights of Children in Alternative Care”.

From February to June 2024, ENYA country teams will conduct several activities related to the annual theme, including meetings with experts and other stakeholders. The purpose of ENYA domestic activities is to support participating children and young people to form and express informed views, and to share their experience in a safe and inclusive environment. Based on their views and experience, each ENYA team will elaborate and propose up to five action oriented recommendations for a better protection and promotion of the rights of this specific group of children.

ENYA country recommendations will be further presented and discussed on the occasion of the ENYA 2024 Forum, which will be held on 1-2 July 2024, in Bratislava, Slovakia. The event will be hosted by the Office of the Commissioner for Children, Slovakia. ENYA participants will prioritise and vote on the final recommendations which will be introduced to Ombudspersons for Children at the ENOC Annual Conference in Helsinki and further integrated in the ENOC policy position statement addressing the rights of children in alternative care.
