Another challenging and strenuous year for everyone, and particularly for children, is behind us. Despite the uncertainties and fears of losing loved ones, not being able to go to school, losing a job or being isolated, we look to the new year of 2022 hopeful that the return to “normal” life will continue. As a society we learned a lot during these past two years. We became more creative, resourceful and adaptable, and most importantly we learned not to take things for granted. While the pandemic continues and will continue to affect children and children’s rights in many ways, the Council of Europe and its partners will pursue every avenue to advance and uphold the rights of the child, guided by the new Strategy for the Rights of the Child (2022-2027) to be launched in Rome (Italy) in the spring. This strategy will bring in new objectives inspired by the advice and expertise of children in our member states. We remain committed to respecting and considering their advice, and to making sure that we keep our promises to the children in Europe. In order to make the strategy more accessible and accountable to children, a child-friendly version will also be produced in close consultation with them.
This year’s family calendar (bilingual English/French) is illustrated by a talented French photographer, Stéphane Ait Ouarab, who has an eye for colours, for optimism and for children who are strong and not afraid to be daring, ambitious, playful, adventurous, creative and kind at the same time. The idea was to show children in all their beauty, enjoying life as they know best and their rights to express themselves, play, laugh and enjoy art and nature. Special thanks go to the children in the photos. We hope that their gentle and sometimes mischievous smiles, audacity, energy and positive vibes will illuminate 2022 and will motivate and inspire you to join us in promoting and safeguarding children’s rights.
The calendar has plenty of space for all those appointments and birthdays. See the whole family's activities at a glance!
