The Child Protection Area of Responsibility (CP AoR) and the Care and Protection of Children (CPC) Learning Network at Columbia University invite you to join us for a webinar on engaging children as partners and leaders in child protection during the COVID-19 pandemic.
At the outset of the pandemic, children and youth were facing unprecedented challenges caused by quarantine measures and school closure policies in nearly every country in the world. At the same time these challenges emerged, child-focused organizations found it harder than ever to communicate with children, needing to adapt their methods of hearing children’s voices and ensuring children’s participation to virtual and “socially distanced” realities.
The new ‘Moving Towards Children as Partners in Child Protection in COVID-19 Guide’ aims to assist humanitarian actors to maintain and strengthen children’s meaningful participation in their work in response to the current pandemic.
During the webinar, International Institute for Child Rights and Development (IICRD)'s Laura Wright and Vanessa Currie will present on the child participation tip sheets and tools that have been adapted for the COVID-19 context and Artolution and #CovidUnder19 will present their experiences meaningfully engaging children in their initiatives.
Register to join us Tuesday, September 29, 9:00-11:00 AM EDT!
