Childhood through Diverse Lenses
About the festival
The festival is an on-line event hosted by the Alliance for Childhood-European Network Group (ENG) in Brussels. This festive event will also be the ENG’s 85th QoC- session, bringing attention to the needs and potentials of childhood. Quality of Childhood (QoC) sessions are usually held in the Parliament building of the European Union in Brussels around four times a year and are hosted by the sitting MEPs who act as our patrons.

Here is a video recording of the presentations at the Anniversary Celebration.
The programme includes world-wide presentations, breakout groups and art as well as contributions from children and young people. Along with short reminiscences from the past we considered the tasks for the present and the future. All in a mood of celebration that through our work and focus on the quality of childhood we can, together, make a difference to children!s lives, and with and through them have a positive effect on our troubled world. Presenters include Tim Gill from the UK, Maria Belen Paz from Bolivia, Jane Hankel from Australia and Olena Shyyan from Ukraine.
