From the 24th of August until the 2nd of September the General Assembly will take place in Belgium. The General Assembly is the highest decision making body of FIMCAP, taking place every 3 years. The General Assembly is made up of representatives from each member organization. These representatives set the direction of FIMCAP for the next three years.
For the General Assembly of 2019 “the value of play” has been chosen as central theme. Playing is one of the rights described in the Convention on the Rights of the Child, more specifically in article 31 of this Convention, which will be the starting point for our General Assembly:
“That every child has the right to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child and to participate freely in cultural life and the arts.”
