With the action “Journey of the European Child Forum” children and adults are sensitized to respect the everyday application of the provisions of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. It is contributed to the realization of the idea of active citizenship which was realized through participation of volunteers in the implementation of the action, but also with the public gathering.
The action improved the knowledge about the rights of children and developed the responsibility of larger number of people from Liburnian area to respect children’s rights in daily life at the local level. Increased knowledge was visible among children of primary school age from City of Opatija and Municipality of Lovran and Mošćenička Draga on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
