The global climate emergency impacts children disproportionately. The present, and the future, of children everywhere are seriously threatened by environmental damage, and the most disadvantaged and vulnerable children are the most affected.
Often founded on traditions, cultural practices aim to link the child with his or her culture, family, and society. However, when their rights have been violated, these practices can have dramatic consequences.
Isolation and rootlessness
Orphaned, kidnapped, or displaced children in times of war or disaster are isolated from their families and their country. Lacking protection , they become more exposed to violations.
Justice of children
Almost all countries agree on the need to adapt proper forms of justice to respect the needs of children. In reality, many children are victims of faulty judicial systems.
