Scotland to host Eurochild Conference 2018!

Our member and National Partner Network, Children in Scotland has been successful in its proposal of hosting the Eurochild conference in the magical city of Edinburgh.

Our member and National Partner Network, Children in Scotland has been successful in its proposal of hosting the Eurochild conference in the magical city of Edinburgh. The conference, which is hosted by a member every two years, will take place provisionally in June 2018. 2018 will be the Year of Young People in Scotland celebrating Scotland’s children and young people and providing a national and international platform for their voices. The conference will aim to harness the potential of this support and visibility on the rights of children and young people.

The decision on the winning proposal was taken by the Management Board meeting in October 2016. The Management Board recognised the equally high quality proposal of Society “Our Children” Opatija in Croatia and has offered them the opportunity to host the following Eurochild Conference in 2020.

More details on the conference will be shared in due time. Congratulations to Children in Scotland and see you all in Edinburgh in 2018!
