The Childhood Summit is a bi-annual event, puts children at the centre, augmenting the child-centric conversation, by-in and systemic change for children, with children.
This event advocates for the rights of Australian children and promotes children as active citizens.
In this fast paced, rapidly changing world how are the children doing?
The Childhood Summit is a dedicated platform to hear the voice of children, bringing together children, thought leaders, gatekeepers, key influencers and practitioners across the community at large. This event contributes to the national conversation and movement towards actions that will protect our children’s overall health, wellbeing, life satisfaction and our planet.
The event aims to increase the value of listening to children and promoting children as active community citizens. This event supports connectedness and cohesiveness of our communities to rallying around our young.
There is a different theme of focus every year for the three day event and includes Pop-up Playgrounds, Keynote addresses from professional and children and practical action-based workshops and walkshops.
