About this talk

Faith actors can play significant roles in safeguarding children, and all faith traditions also offer critical perspectives on the importance of meaningful child participation. This multireligious panel discussion will look at child participation as a central pillar of child safeguarding, that should be supported within faith spaces. Members and partners of the Global Network of Religions for Children (GNRC) in Africa, Latin America and SouthEast Asia, will share their experiences on the practical application of child participation and implications on violence prevention and response, in Muslim, Christian and Buddhist Communities. The panel will provide a unique space to explore challenges and opportunities to create religious spaces that are age-appropriate and child friendly, and equip children to stand up and break the silence on their own abuse, while also working with faith leaders, families, and caregivers.

This live inter-faith panel will be moderated by Silvia Mazzarelli, Regional Coordinator Global Network of Religions for Children for LAC and Vera Leal, Senior Education Officer at Arigatou International.
