Petition for European Commissioner for Children, 26/06/2019 [W/E/S/N.I.]

Children’s rights organisation, Eurochild, have released a petition calling for the creation of a European Union Commissioner for Children.

The EU is about to decide on the European Commissioners for the next five years. They will set the EU’s political and spending priorities.

Eurochild points out that although children’s rights are enshrined in EU law, there are still plenty of challenges faced by children in the European Union. There’s no single person responsible for enforcing and prioritising children’s rights.

You can sign the petition to ask Donald Tusk to appoint an EU Commissioner for Children.
