Eurochild’s 2018 Conference is being organised under the high patronage of the President of the Republic of Croatia, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, in partnership with the City of Opatija. The event will bring positive examples of how public decision-makers at local, national and European levels are respecting the right of children to participate in decisions affecting them.

The Conference will host an estimated 250-300 participants including public sector officials, politicians, children’s rights professionals and children. It is expected that a third of the participants at the Conference are under the age of 18. That includes our Eurochild Conference Young Advisory group which consists of 10 children aged 14-18, from 8 different countries. By involving this group in the planning, preparation and delivery of the conference, the Conference itself will be an example of participation in action.
