The framework of the activity will also have as a transversal axis the protagonist participation of youth in the promotion and defense of their human rights, making different proclamations regarding the fight against all forms of violence against children and adolescents, as well as violence gender, education, poverty among other sensitive issues.
The activity is part of the project More Rights, More Participation: More Knowledge that the UNCD has been carrying out with the co-financing of the Delegation of the European Union in Uruguay , to which are added the support of ANONG , the Latin American Network and Caribeña for the defense of the rights of children and adolescents ( REDLAMYC ) and the regional project Weaving Childhood Networks , Save the Children and also the Canary Islands .
For the UNCD as well as our strategic partners, this activity and future actions that we develop linked to the participation of adolescents and young people are essential.
