31 May 15:00-16:00 CET

Child empowerment is high on education policy agendas around the world. The growing view is that children are autonomous agents of change who play important roles in shaping current and future democracies.  A large body of evidence suggests that education systems can help empower children to act on topics that they feel passionate about and that affect them as outlined in the latest OECD report, “What does child empowerment mean today?”.

In this Ask an Expert webinar, we’ll learn the student and teacher perspective on how education policy and practice can support child empowerment and what empowerment can look like from different perspectives. We’ll also will delve into what some of the challenges and opportunities are in developing and implementing child-centered policies and practices that acknowledge the rights, experiences and opinions of children in education systems worldwide.
