Engaging Children, Empowering Youth: Celebrating International Children’s Day

In celebration of International Children's Day, the Council of Europe Office in Yerevan organised an event at the Anania Shirakatsy Lyceum.

The event, which took place as part of the 75th anniversary celebrations of the Council of Europe, engaged middle and high school students in interactive learning activities to raise awareness of their rights and the Council of Europe, fostering meaningful discussions, creativity, and empowerment.

The Council of Europe team facilitated sessions on topics such as children's rights, the role and impact of the Council of Europe in protecting and promoting children’s rights, integrated into a variety of fun activities and exercises. Students gained valuable knowledge and skills that will help them become informed and responsible citizens.

Additionally, the event included performance activities, where students were able to perform and showcase their talents.

This event was held in the framework of the “Protecting the Rights of Armenian Children in Post-Conflict Context” project.

The Council of Europe is the continent’s leading human rights organisation, with 46 member states, including Armenia. All our member states are party to the European Convention on Human Rights, which is the cornerstone of human rights protection in Europe.

The Council of Europe Office in Yerevan, represents the Secretary General in Armenia. It closely co-operates with national authorities supporting the implementation of statutory obligations to the Council of Europe by Armenia through co-operation projects.


Armenia and the Council of Europe – bringing human rights from the conference table to your kitchen table

The Council of Europe works for you. We want to give visibility to the role, standards and work of the Council of Europe in its member states, to show how Council of Europe membership has helped achieve particular results or changes. Our aim, through a variety of events and actions, is to highlight ways in which the Council of Europe’s action has helped improve the life of individuals and contributed to improving people’s enjoyment of fundamental rights.


Whether it is the impact of the European Convention on Human Rights at national level, or the Council of Europe's work in many fields, such as working to abolish the death penalty or to ensure freedom of expression and freedom of the media, or to adress online and technology-facilitated violence against women through the Istanbul Convention and Budapest Convention on Cybercrime, the Council of Europe has achieved a lot since 1949. View achievements »
