I am also part of the Voices of Future Generations (VoFG) initiative!
The VoFG is a movement on children’s rights and sustainable development, is a unique programme of action that empowers us (children) to promote the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Their mission is to assist us (children) to advance the right to education and literacy globally through the children’s book series. Many of my friends have authored books and they are only 8 to 12 years-old. Can you imagine being so young and having your own book published? Click here and here to see who they are.
These stories are from all over the world for all children to benefit from the knowledge and insight. You have to check them out! Click here for English and here for Spanish
I have also participated in many VoFG-Intergenerational Dialogue Programmes – which is a fancy name for debates 😉 where children (like you and me) can communicate with experts and express our ideas to global leaders. This communications in the fields of children’s rights and sustainable development are normally of great benefit for the global leaders, because who can explain better the needs of children, than children, right? 🙂
