In August 2016 the 25th General Assembly of FIMCAP will take place in Switzerland, hosted by our friends of Jubla. We hope to welcome all our member organizations there. On the General Assembly we will focus on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), from a child and youth perspective. Youth are an integral aspect of the goals, and every goal requires youth participation to succeed.
Every year FIMCAP Day will mark the start of a new year theme. 20 November 2015 will be the start of the year on child labor. We might think that child labor is a very specific problem and only a concern in specific regions, but we forget that our behaviour as a consumer often keeps such practices alive elsewhere in the world.
On the 20th of November we celebrate FIMCAP day, a day of common action among our member organizations. It is no coincidence that we celebrate FIMCAP day on this date as it is the day that the Convention of the Rights of the Child was signed, marking the day as the day of the Rights of the Child. As youth organizations, it is our task to build a society in which these rights are guaranteed for every child.
