Children's conference at Geneva City Council

Every year, children from several cantons come together for the “Conférence des enfants”. The objective? Actively engage and contribute to better implementation of children’s rights! Last June, these young leaders took a symbolic step: they prepared and asked their questions to municipal councilors in the “Conseil Municipal” room. A first, because no child has previously held an elected seat in this room!
