Overview:
This unique and powerful exhibition will highlight that for over a million children in Europe, the right to a family life is still not realised. Visitors will hear from young people themselves and from experts in child development and fundamental rights about the detrimental effects of institutionalisation, and the benefits of prevention and alternative care. In a Europe of rights, no child should have to grow up in and institution; with policy support and funding from the EU, they won’t have to. Speakers at the roundtable include Dr Charles H. Zeanah, a leading global expert in early childhood development, and renowned children’s rights expert Dr Maria Herzog of the UN’s Committee for the Rights of the Child. Speakers include Commissioner László Andor and Vice-President of the European Parliament Roberta Angelilli.
