The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child enshrines a child’s right to freedom of expression and right to participate in cultural and artistic activities.

Assitej International believes much more needs to be done to meet all countries obligations and recommends in its Manifesto involving children and young people through consultation and collaboration. But do we truly listen and take heed of young voices at national and local level?

This is panel of policy makers and cultural leaders discusses what more can be done.
