A child-centred investment strategy: Why the Investment Plan for Europe needs to prioritise children

Eurochild releases its model for a child-centred investment strategy to advance the potential of the new European Fund for Strategic Investment.

This working document details how investment must take a rights-based approach and prioritise children. A child-centred investment strategy prioritises investment in five pillars: education, early years policies, health promotion, community development and family strengthening, and social protection and welfare support.

On the occasion of the European Commission and the European Investment Bank holding a conference on Education and the Investment Plan on this day, Eurochild offers its perspective of the meaning of a good investment in education.
