Mission
Eurochild is a network of organisations and individuals working in and across Europe to promote the rights and well-being of children and young people. The vision is of a society where children and young people grow up happy, healthy and confident and respected as individuals in their own right. The mission is to promote the rights and well-being of children in policy and practice through advocacy, membership exchange and research. Our work is underpinned by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). An international human rights treaty that grants all children and young people a comprehensive set of rights. The network is co-funded by the European Union’s programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI).
