What’s new about the European Child Guarantee
Contributions on the future of the Child Guarantee and possible tools to implement it
Where did the idea of a child Guarantee conference come from?
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.
Organisations in Europe that care for minors every day are working to build a European Alliance for Child Guarantee in order to confront each other and interact with the institutions:
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 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 Child Guarantee (EACG)
