Abstract [en]

"The Nordic Region must be the best place in the world for children and young people”

This is the vision of this cross-sectoral strategy for children and young people in theNordic Region, which makes children and young people aged between 0 and 25 a priority target group within the Nordic council of Ministers.

A central goal of the strategy is for the Nordic Council of Ministers to integrate the perspective of children’s rights and young people into their work to a greater extent, thus highlighting and taking into consideration the voices of children and young people.

Based on the principles enshrined in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Council of Ministers seeks to protect and promote the rights of boys and girls, young women and men, and to provide opportunities for them to exercise these rights and participate in society. The well-being of children and young people and opportunities for them to exercise their rights are prerequisites for sustainable development in the Nordic Region. The Council of Ministers wants to ensure that the Region is a pioneer in efforts to create a society that respects the rights and perspectives of children and young people, and gives them opportunities to contribute to the way in which their society develops.
