SPOT GIRA POR LA INFANCIA 2020
WHAT IS GIRA POR LA INFANCIA?
Gira por la Infancia is an international project that, after 4 face-to-face editions, presents its first edition in virtual mode. The aim of the project is to create a culture of good treatment through child participation. Until now it has been configured as a platform where professionals from different parts of the world have shared their experiences in this field. Likewise, children and adolescents have carried out participation activities such as social policy forums and the caravan of good treatment. Gira por la infancia is a firm commitment to the development of social action and advocacy on behalf of fundamental rights of childhood and adolescence.
WHO WILL PARTICIPATE IN GIRA POR LA INFANCIA 2020?
For the first time, Gira por la Infancia will focus all its prominence on childhood and adolescence. It is estimated that approximately 30 countries from the 5 continents will be part of this fifth edition. Boys, girls and adolescents grouped through child participation councils, schools, scout groups and associations will share their experiences on the closure of schools as a consequence of COVID-19 through the Zoom program. And they will also share their proposals to achieve a school that responds to the educational and social needs produced by the pandemic.
WHAT WILL BE DONE WITH THE RESULTS OF GIRA POR LA INFANCIA 2020?
The obtained results will be disseminated on social networks through short videos and reports and will be sent to institutions, public administrations and the main governments around the world so that they do everything possible to consider the proposals of children and adolescents.
