About the conference:

The conference will challenge the international community to focus on the issues of children as next of kin and young carers. It will call on society to take responsibility and actualise the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and, in particular, when a child has a family member who is seriously ill or has an addiction or mental illness or experiences bereavement in their family.

During the conference, children and youths from EU will take an active part in presentations, interactive workshops and seminars and make suggestions on how to develop the support of children as next of kin and young carers.

The event aim to strengthen collaboration between countries and different stakeholders via inspiring collaborative policy, research and practice development work. The overall objective is to maximize children's health, well-being, development and education.
