Child Friendly Cities
Since 2002, UNICEF France has been working through a network of child-friendly communities to make effective the rights of the child on French territory. More than 300 cities and intermunicipalities are, to date, child-friendly and committed to supporting all children and young people in their development. The voice, needs, priorities and rights of the child are an integral part of public policies, decisions and programs.
Becoming a child-friendly community is a political commitment at the scale of a territory and concerns all elected officials, community agents, partner educational actors, inhabitants and of course children and young people. Five areas are at the heart of the community promise: well-being, non-discrimination and equality, education, participation and awareness of children’s rights. The objective is to obtain, during and at the end of the mandate, lasting results around these five commitments.
Child Rights Friendly Schools
The Friendship School program places the rights of the child at the heart of the educational project to transform the school sustainably by allowing children and adults to reinvent it together.
The education community implements three recommendations to become a child rights friendly school: Learning about rights: Raising awareness of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child – Learning through rights: Improving the school climate – Learning for rights: Promoting children’s engagement and participation in active citizenship
The Child Rights Friendly School program will be offered to schools from the start of the 2023 academic year. It will enable educational communities to benefit from a turnout kit containing educational and methodological tools, turnkey projects to bring the rights of the child to life throughout the school year, training, regular meetings and exchanges.
