The new comprehensive EU Strategy on the Rights of the Child and the European Child Guarantee are major policy initiatives put forward by the European Commission to better protect all children, to help them fulfil their rights and to place them right at the centre of EU policy-making. Both initiatives have been informed by extensive consultations with citizens, stakeholders and, most importantly, more than 10,000 children.
The EU Strategy on the Rights of the Child has been developed for children and with children. Children should have access to information provided in a child-friendly way so they can clearly know what their rights are and, in this case, what the EU plans to do for them. The child-friendly versions of the strategy were co-designed by children and presented the information in a digestible way for their readers. Children advised on the language, images and examples used in the leaflets. Moreover, the child-friendly version of the strategy is accessible for visually impaired readers and can be accessed using assistive devices and technology.
