Tue, 05/07/2005 - 9:00am
Ljubljana, Slovenia
July 5-7, 2005

In preparation for the Regional Consultation for the UN Study on Violence Against Children in Europe and Central Asia, "Stop Violence Against Children: Act Now!" to be held in July in Slovenia, the Working Group on Child Participation in the UN Study on Violence against Children, Europe and Central Asia is pleased to invite nominations of children and young person to participate in this Consultation and the preparatory meeting "Children and Young People Act Now!" which will precede it.

The Europe and Central Asia Consultation is one of nine regional meetings that will be held globally as part of the two-year UN Secretary General's Study on Violence against Children. The Regional Consultations aim to mobilise governments and civil society to identify actions needed to address the issue of violence against children and provide inputs to the Study.

The ECA Consultation is hosted by the Government of Slovenia and organised in collaboration with the Council of Europe, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, UNICEF, the World Health Organisation and the NGO Advisory Panel to the UN Study. The international Save the Children Alliance is responsible for overall co-ordination and facilitation of involvement and meaningful participation of children and young people in the Consultation process.

Children and young people's active participation in these consultations is vital to the validity of the outcomes and to the experience as a whole. A total of 300 participants from across Europe and Central Asia is expected to attend the Regional consultation. The total of 25 children and young people under the age of 18 will have the opportunity to participate in the Consultation.

Two days prior to the Consultation, a preparatory meeting with children and young people "Children and Young People Act Now!" is planned (2-4 July). These two days will aim to ensure that children and young people will be able to get to know one another, discuss the themes of the Consultation, share experiences and prepare for the regional meeting itself.
