Global Child Rights Online

- sustainable global networking to implement the rights of the child

Programme managers Emma Alfredsson and Deana Nannskog from the Child Rights Institute at Lund University share their experiences by taking you through 13 years of global change work regarding the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The Sida financed international training programme on “Child Rights, Classroom and School Management” ran from 2003-2016 and initiated more than 250 change processes in the education sector around the world, aiming to realise children’s rights in policy as well as in practice. 

In collaboration with change agents from 16 national alumni networks, CRi@LU has now developed a digital platform - Global CRC Online - an innovative way towards social sustainability in education.

The Child Rights Institute at Lund University together with 16 national networks as partners welcome people from differents organisations, from all over the world!

In line with the Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4) the aim of this networking and learning portal is to provide professionals with a useful platform where experiences can be shared, knowledge enhanced and results disseminated - all in the best interest of the child. Join us in our mission to train new change agents as well as to initiate research collaborations and new networks onwards!

The Project

Global CRC Online - continued support for networks from the International Training Programme on Child Rights, Classroom and School Management supported by Sida (Swedish International Development Co-operation Agency).

The purpose of the project is that Child Rights Institute at Lund University (CRi@LU) and 16 national networks of CRC change agents, will establish a useful, supportive digital platform. The purpose of the platform is to:

  • consolidate results from the ITP on Child Rights, Classroom and School Management in terms of practices and materials facilitate continued work with CRC,
  • networking & partnership
  • training & research
  • exchange of experiences 

The overall objective is that the Global CRC Online platform and the national networks are known amongst important stakeholders and national actors in their countries.

The project to devlop and establish the platform runs for 1.5 years from January 2017 to July 2018. After that the platform will be hosted by Child Rights Institute at Lund University and open for everyone interested in realising the Child Rights Convention in policy as well as in practice.
