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)

    I bambini e i ragazzi possiedono, tra le tante, tre cose straordinarie … la fantasia, l’incoscienza e il coraggio.

    I bambini e i ragazzi vedono il mondo, riconoscono e vivono la meraviglia, così come riconoscono e patiscono le brutture e l’orrore.

    Con l’incoscienza e con la fantasia cercano, fortunatamente spesso riuscendoci, di costruire strategie per proteggersi dal male. Con il coraggio lottano e urlano per dimostrarci che in quelle strategie potremmo trovare insieme soluzioni per migliorare e cambiare il mondo, quello di oggi e quello futuro.

    Forse noi adulti dovremmo tentare di recuperare un po’ di incoscienza e di fantasia, dovremmo ritrovare quello straordinario senso di meraviglia, ma soprattutto dovremmo ritrovare il coraggio … perché il coraggio è la prima faccia della responsabilità, e chi perde coraggio si tira indietro, si chiama fuori.

    Mio figlio, che oggi ha 31, anni quando era nel pieno del furore adolescenziale mi ha scritto:
    “(..) ho bisogno di questa battaglia. Disperatamente. (..) Ho un disperato bisogno che tu tenga l’altra estremità della corda. Che tu ti aggrappi con fermezza mentre tiro dalla mia parte, che cerco di trovare un appoggio e un posto in questo nuovo mondo a cui sento di appartenere.”

    Da una parte della corda tira chi combatte per i diritti, dall’altra parte tira chi li calpesta … una storia vecchia come il mondo ma che non diventa mai vecchia, non diventa mai storia …

    Quello che ho capito è che se si trova la forza di non mollare la corda a un certo punto ci si accorge che la si sta tirando insieme dalla stessa parte … forse è così che un giorno vinceremo le battaglie e scriveremo una nuova storia.

    Avrei tanto voluto saper dire le stesse cose ai miei genitori che credo non si siano mai ripresi del tutto dalla mia furente adolescenza e, quanto fossimo ancorati agli stessi valori, l’ho capito forse troppo tardi …

    THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT’S COORDINATOR FOR CHILDREN’S RIGHTS is a good man to know. Guided by the principle of the “best interests of the child”, the Coordinator shall endeavour to ensure the promotion and protection of the rights of the child in all EU policies and rules. The Coordinator also aims to provide guidance to citizens involved in cases of child abduction by a parent and in other cross-border family disputes, is committed to closer cooperation with judicial and administrative bodies and seeks to promote mediation in cross-border family matters.

    I think is very very important to educate and involve parents and everyone, who take part in the child’s upbringing. Create places, when children, parents, teachers, psychologist, nursery owners can work together; mutually supporting each other – the we can do much more.
    I dream about nurseries completely supporting children’s health and education system. I already create few places which works in this system- but it’s still not enough, still missing social awareness… I hope our Alliance can change this.

    Today the children’s rights’ issue takes on a special meaning. The planetary events of this period have led society and politics to ask children to give up some of their rights. I hope this alliance will reach as many stakeholders as possible in order to be able to strongly advocate the rights of all citizens. Children are already citizens today, there is no reason to wait for “a future” and therefore to postpone courageous choices.

      La costituzione di una forte alleanza verso i diritti delle giovani generazioni diviene un naturale patto e contratto della costruzione di un futuro per i giovani attori che ne saranno i protagonisti.

    This is an excellent starting point, children’s rights will be the foundation of a better European Union

  6. Child

    “A child can always teach three things to an adult:
    1. To be content for no reason.
    2. To always be busy with something.
    3. To demand with all his might what he desires.” PAULO COELHO

    The Child Guarantee aims to ensure that all children in Europe at risk of poverty, social exclusion or otherwise disadvantaged have access to good quality essential services.

    The guarantee will recommend that EU countries finance and develop strategies and action plans to ensure that children in difficulty have access to free or affordable services, such as:

    education, including early childhood education and care
    health care, food and accommodation
    cultural and recreational activities.

    Mi piace credere che possiamo lavorare per migliorare le condizioni di vita di tutti i bambini
