Child Rights in Action was launched by Initiatives of Change which works to develop citizen involvement to improve social cohesion. The Child Rights in Action programme gives children a voice, enabling them to contribute to the development of a fair society in which fundamental rights are respected. This programme includes a week-long international forum which encourages discussions between children and adults.


As part of the Child Rights in Action programme, Initiatives of Change will host a workshop on Thursday 1st October (14h30-16h) with personal accounts from children who have lived in war-torn areas. This event will take the form of a human library. The principle: the books in a human library are people who have a story to tell to a small group of “readers” who are interested in their story. After an initial focus on the story, a discussion with the “readers” begins. The story can include photos and symbolic items and can feature several elements: the place where the story took place, the issue which was raised, who was involved and how adults and children could have worked together to solve this issue.
