The Children’s Rights Conference

Our students organised the Children’s Rights Conference with the honorary patronage of UNICEF Poland to honour the 30th anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child by the UN General Assembly in November 1989.

The aim of the event was to disseminate awareness of children’s rights among students and to inspire young people to seek answers to the many controversial questions surrounding children today. The topics presented and discussed at the conference included: children’s rights in the digital age, the importance of the children’s wellbeing, the importance of acceptance and inclusion of children with special needs, the development of pro-innovative competences in some European education system, the life of Palestinian children, children’s rights in the communities around the world, and the rights in reality: protection from violence. Finally, students from the European International School and Toruń Academic School hold a debate for and against the following thesis: “Protection or invigilation: The use of electronic tracking devices invades children’s privacy rights.”

On behalf of our students, we would like to thank the conference’s speakers for their outstanding presentations and inspirational discussions, namely:
