Our Planet, Our Rights, Our Voices: A Children’s Global Charter   

Children are demanding a safe, healthy and sustainable world that respects their rights. Together with the General Comment No.26 Steering group, the Children’s Advisory Team has created Our Planet, Our Rights, Our Voices: a Children’s Global Charter. This is a window into some of the key messages, stories, and calls to action children shared as part of the global process of creating General Comment No.26. As far as possible, it uses children’s own words to illustrate their visions for a clean, healthy and sustainable world.
