Child Rights Connect: Child-friendly Guidelines for Submissions Now Available!

Author: Child Rights Connect
Document Type: Others
Document Abstract:


Child Rights Connect has developed child-friendly versions of the guidelines for submissions in EnglishFrench and Spanish. Children can, now, know how they can tell the Committee and the world what they think about Children as Human Rights Defenders!

Both adults and children are encouraged to answer to the call for submissions available on the Committee’s webpage (deadline 1st July 2018).


The Committee wants children to be at the heart of the DGD and for children’s voices to be central in all aspects of the preparations, throughout the Day itself and what happens afterwards.

Children’s Advisory Team!

Child Rights Connect has set up a Children’s Advisory Team! There are 20 Child Advisors on the Team, from 19 countries and covering all regions of the world! They each have a supporting organisation of which there are 17 in total.

They have developed a roadmap of activities of the Child Advisors which will continue to be updated and reviewed by the children.

Global Consultations

Child Rights Connect will be supporting a global round of DGD children’s consultations to be taken forward by the Children’s Advisory Team, by the members and partners, including by adults and children themselves, between March and June 2018.

A methodology is being developed based on the findings and key themes from the children’s consultations on the DGD Concept Note and with the inputs of the Child Advisors, and will be available the website by mid-March (watch this space!).

Main consultation aims:

  • Collect from children acting or seeking to become human rights defenders their experiences, views and solution-oriented recommendations on the recognition, empowerment and protection of children human rights defenders to inform the programme and discussions of the DGD and related activities;
  • To raise awareness and understanding of the topic of children human rights defenders and to support/advance their ongoing efforts related to children’s rights.

The consultation findings will feed into a number of activities including the development of a publication, which will directly inform the discussions during the DGD, by being sent as a written submission to the UN Committee’s broad ‘call for submissions’ (to then inform the DGD Background Paper) and by being circulated as a resource during the DGD.
