What children and young people of Belgrade need – public action announcement


On Saturday 6th June 2015, from 1 PM to 3 PM at the Republic Square, members of the Children’s Informative Cultural Service DX – a group of children and young people active within the Child Rights Centre – are organizing a public action entitled “What children and young people of Belgrade need”.


Action is a continuation of the activities of members of the youth group which, in cooperation with the members of the Club for healthy changes (a group that brings together children and youth with disabilities), during 2014 organized focus groups with representatives of children and youth in Belgrade about what their generation see as priority needs in the city, with an emphasis on the needs whose satisfaction can be fully or partially provided at the local level. This can also be helpful in creating future strategic documents of the City of Belgrade, primarily those related to the field of realization of child rights and defining policy of the City of Belgrade towards children, which was announced by the formation of the Council for Child Rights of the City of Belgrade.

On this occasion, the children and young people – passersby – will have the opportunity, through the stickers that they would stick to the tree painted on a large canvas, express their views on what the young people and children need in order their life in Belgrade to be even better, and thus contribute to the opinion of the general public.

The action was supported by Assistant Secretary for education and child protection of the city of Belgrade, Ms. Danijela Markovic.
