First International Conference of the Latin America and Caribbean Regional Network: Children and Adolescents Growing up in Contexts of Poverty, Marginalization and Violence in Latin America
Organized by: PUC, Department of Social Work - CIESPI and Childwatch International.
This was organized as a seminar that was open to the public at PUC, and was supported by Childwatch International. This seminar was attended by approximately 100 people (students, professors, researchers and community workers). During this discussion each participant took time to speak about the situation of children and youth in their respective countries, with particular focus on marginalized children, and what their organization is doing to improve the situation. Through the discussion we gained insight that many countries had similar fundamental problems and that a studied approach to these issues could create progress for Latin America as a whole.
