EUROPEAN ALLIANCE FOR THE CHILD GUARANTEE
Contributions on the future of the Child Guarantee and possible tools to implement it
The 20th of November 2021 is the date of the official constitution of the European Alliance for the Child Guarantee – EACG
To mark the occasion, the Promoter Committee has organised an event open to all to be held at 10:00 a.m. at the headquarters of the Lombardy Delegation at Place du Champ de Mars 2, Brussels and online on the zoom platform.
The European institutions are working towards a child guarantee EU:
11 March 2021, the European Parliament adopted a resolution on the rights of the child in the light of the EU strategy on the rights of the child.
24 March 2021, the European Commission adopted the first EU strategy on children’s rights, together with a proposal for a recommendation to establish a European guarantee for children at risk of poverty or social exclusion.
14 June 2021, the Member States meeting in the EPSCO Council (Employment, Social Policy, Health and Consumers) adopted a recommendation establishing the “European Guarantee for Children” to ensure access to essential services such as education and health, under the Portuguese Presidency, which wanted to make a strong impression on social issues in its mandate.
All of us who work for children every day have created the European Alliance for the Child Guarantee:
13 October 2021 a group of European civil society actors, non-governmental organisations, training and educational bodies working daily for minors promoted in Brussels, at the headquarters of the Lombardy Region delegation, a promotional conference of the European Alliance for the Child Guarantee. The event was also broadcast online and streamed on various social platforms and was attended by 5 MEPs, numerous experts and professionals from all over Europe.
20 November 2021 conference organisers set out on International Children’s and Adolescents’ Day 2021 to establish the European Alliance for the Child Guarantee (EACG) consider all those who sign the memorandum of association as founders.
