CHILD RIGHTS BASED APPROACH
The project proposes a child rights based approach to youth work related to child protection and development. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) contains all the civil, political, economic, social and cultural human rights of children. The UN CRC emphasises that children are holders of rights and their rights cover all aspects of their lives. It applies to all human beings under the age of 18. States that have ratified the UN CRC are legally bound by it. Child rights programming involves the practical application of the UN CRC to bring about real changes in the lives of all children.

In this frame participants will learn:
- about the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child;
- how to undertake a “child right based analysis”;
- how to co-plan & design community-based projects through child rights-based approach, analytical steps & logical framework planning;
- about youth work and cooperation in the Euro-Mediterranean region.

Methodologies used during the training will be:
- Non-formal education, peer & cooperative learning
- Project Cycle Management (EU Commission)
