Greek Chairmanship’s priorities and focus on children’s rights

From May to November 2020, Greece chairs the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe. In the emergency time imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Greek Chairmanship highlights the importance to concentrate on the younger generations, by planning a number of events on the promotion and protection of the rights of the child. Children and young people’s rights are addressed across all thematic priority areas of the chairmanship, ranging from education and democratic culture in a digital era, children as vulnerable persons (with a focus on children at risk of poverty, children victims of violence, trafficking, forced labour and unaccompanied migrant children), the rights of younger generations to enjoy cultural heritage unaffected by climate change and social rights and access to health.
