IV World Congress on Child and Adolescent Rights

The IV World Congress on Child and Adolescent Rights will take place in Puerto Rico* from the 15th to the 18th of November 2010. This renowned event draws nearly 1,000 participants and more than 20 countries are represented. Its main objective  is  to  provide  an  academic,  scientific  and  professional  forum  for  the  interdisciplinary  exchange  of  ideas,  knowledge  and  experiences  regarding  the  human  rights  of  children  and  adolescents.  At  the  same  time,  it  comprises  an  international  encounter  for  the  effective  participation  of  children and adolescents. The three previous World Congresses were held in Isla Margarita, Venezuela, in 2003; Lima, Peru, in 2005; and Barcelona, Spain, in 2007.

The  central  theme  of  the  IV  World  Congress  is  “The  best  interest  of  children and  adolescents:  Well-being  and  development  in  the  new  world  economic order.”  The  program  will  be  structured  around  six  general  thematic  areas: poverty,  education,  health,  participation,  identity  and  violence.  These  have been  drawn  from  the  considerations  and  conclusions  of  the Barcelona Declaration authored by the children and adolescents who participated in the III  World  Congress  on  Child  and  Adolescent  Rights  in  2007.  You  may  access www.iiicongresomundialdeinfancia.org  for  information  on  the  preceding World Congress held in Barcelona.

The  IV  World  Congress  on  Child  and  Adolescent  Rights  is  being  organized by  Defensores  PROCDN,  a  nonprofit  volunteer  based  organization  promoting the rights of children in Puerto Rico.  Please take note and feel free to forward this information.
