CYP Hub-CREAN Online Webinar

Public Webinar 1.30-2.30 p.m.; CREAN meeting 2.30-3.30 p.m. UK Time
You’re cordially invited to the online webinar Building Back Better? Learning from crises for children’s human rights on Tuesday the 10th May. The webinar is organised by Childhood and Youth Studies (Children and Young People Hub), MHSES University of Edinburgh, on behalf of the Children’s Rights European Academic Network. The public webinar will be between 1.30-2.30 p.m. UK time, followed by a CREAN meeting 2.30-3.30 p.m. UK Time for CREAN members.
Crises have seemed ever-present globally over recent years, from the COVID-19 pandemic to climate change. Both of these crises show what can be done collectively to uphold children’s rights, should there be global attention and will. They also highlight extreme inequalities, their impacts and the precarity of human rights in times of crisis. This webinar will explore how to learn from these and other crises, to ‘build back better’ in relation to children’s human rights.
The webinar will include presentations from Prof. Philip D. Jaffé, who is a member of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, and young people from #CovidUnder19, an initiative aimed to foster intergenerational partnerships between children, young people and adult members of the children’s rights community to develop evidence-based advocacy to uphold children’s rights in pandemic recovery and response. After the presentations, we will host an interactive panel with the speakers and others, providing an opportunity for questions and discussion.
The public webinar will be from 1.30-2.30. All those who are Children’s Rights European Academic Network (CREAN) members, or who are interested in CREAN, are invited to continue from 2.30-3.30 for the Annual General Meeting – and to discuss what next for CREAN.
