[PDF] Summary report: Children’s Rights and Business Principles Forum

Author: UN Global Compact Network Belgium, Published on: 2 December 2012

This report summarizes the key themes and discussions from [the first Belgian Children’s Rights and Business Principles Forum]. Following the opening and introductions, the event was structured in two parts. The morning session, moderated by Iris Van der Veken, Chair Global Compact Network Belgium (Manager Corporate Affairs global Rosy Blue), captured the introduction to the Children’s Rights and Business Principles and showed the critical views from civil society, the Council of Europe and top business leaders. A clear overview was given on the state of the world, facts and figures on Children’s Rights worldwide and in Belgium. The afternoon session, moderated by Stefan Maes, Communications Director VBO, focused on guidance on how to implement the Children’s Rights and Business Principles. A panel discussion took place with a concrete call for action in Belgium from a child’s perspective. The media was present until the first coffee break. The final session of the day offered a recap of the discussions.
