UN Children's Rights - Article 2

Children and young people have rights - of course! Who hasn't read or heard of this? However, 75% of parents and still 60% of children and young people only know the subject of children's rights by name. Only 46% of 9-14 year olds have actually heard of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. It will celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2019. For this reason, some children and young people in NRW dealt intensively with the topic together with the Paritätische Jugendwerk NRW during the autumn holidays and were used as ambassadors for children's rights. This is also the case with us at IBZ Friedenshaus eV In the workshop, the participants dealt intensively with Article 2 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which states:

Article 2: respect for children's rights; Non-discrimination

The Contracting States respect the rights set out in this Convention and guarantee them to every child under their jurisdiction without any discrimination, regardless of race, skin color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national, ethnic or social origin , property, disability, birth or other status of the child, his parents or his guardian.


States parties shall take all appropriate measures to ensure that the child is protected from all forms of. Discrimination or punishment because of the status, activities, expressions of opinion or worldview of his parents, guardian or family members.

From this, the children and young people have developed a great clip, which you can see under the following link: https://instastory.net/post/B5FAuSzF8t_
