After having to postpone CRIA Asia 2020 due to the pandemic, the CRIA are very happy and proud to announce that in 2021, Child Rights in Action Forum: Children Beyond Gender will take place online, from the 18th to the 20th of June 2021.
CRIA is a global community to empower children and adults to advocate for the rights of children, as written in the UN Child Right Convention, through child participation and child advocacy. CRIA wants to enhance the participants’ skills, their confidence, widen their network, and find the motivation to carry their own projects throughout the year. The program Child Rights in Action provides a practical solution to children and the stakeholders by showing them simultaneously, the importance of an inclusive approach and the conditions for its implementation.
This year's theme "Children Beyond Gender" has been elected by the children in our core team( group of children and adults from organizations, coming from various pedagogical, social work, and advocacy backgrounds). Indeed, in many parts of Asia, the birth of a girl child is not welcomed. Right from her arrival, she faces discrimination and subjected to oppression at every stage of life.
Through educational activities, the participants will acquire more knowledge about the topic and come up with solutions to the problem Girl Children are facing across the world. These activities include time in plenary session in which an expert with the background of child rights will address with the participants the theme of the forum, smaller discussion groups, workshops to learn a specific skill or a topic that will help the participants to create their own projects. the forum will be followed by advocacy month whereby participants will get a chance to work on their projects by interacting with mentors within the CRIA network.
