WorldForum 2010 "A World Fit for Children: Advancing the Global Movement"
International delegates and child welfare experts will gather in New York November 8 to 11 for WorldForum 2010, the 21st annual summit of the International Forum for Child Welfare.
This year’s theme, A World Fit for Children: Advancing the Global Movement, sets the stage for 500 delegates from 40 nations to take stock of current successes and obstacles; to share cutting edge research, innovative solutions, and best practices; and to plan for future action. A parallel forum for young people will focus on the participation of youth in the welfare process. Alongside the IFCW, co-hosts for the summit will be The Committee for Hispanic Children and Families, Mentoring USA and Mentoring USA/Italia.
A number of sub-themes will also guide the summit’s three days of presentations, panel discussions, workshops and plenary sessions.
In tandem with the United Nations Special Session document, A World Fit for Children, landmark child welfare documents, such as The Convention on the Rights of the Child, the UNICEF Child Protection Strategy, and the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, provide a core set of organizational sub-themes.
