The EU wants to hear from children and include their views in important decisions

The EU has launched a Children’s Participation Platform.

Children have the right to express their views. To make sure that their voices are heard, the EU has launched a Children’s Participation Platform.

The platform is a safe space where children living in the EU can have their say on European laws and policies. They can contact each other, interact, discuss, and learn about their rights. They can also participate in online and offline events and meetings, and experience democracy in action.
