TEDDY Network General Assembly – “Children participation in decision-making in the biomedical sector- from principles to good practices”

TEDDY Network General Assembly – “Children participation in decision-making in the biomedical sector- from principles to good practices”

The General Assembly of TEDDY network will be held on-line, within a hearing at the Council of Europe on the 7th of July from 9.30 am to 14 pm (CEST).  

The Council of Europe Steering Committee for Human Rights in the fields of Biomedicine and Health (CDBIO) and the Steering Committee for the rights of the child (CDENF) are developing a “Guide” aimed at highlighting relevant international frameworks, standards, practical guidance, and examples of national legislation as well as good practices to involve children in the individual decision-making processes affecting their health.  

TEDDY strongly supports this important initiative and has been invited by the Council of Europe to present some of its activities  as good practices in the promotion  and  empowerment of children strategies aimed at  facilitating their participation in the decision-making process.  

This hearing, chaired by the co-chairs of the Working Group in charge of the “Guide”, will also be an opportunity to present the Council of Europe video developed by the Council of Europe and TEDDY with a participatory methodology involving the TEDDY Kids group.  

At the end of the hearing, the TEDDY General Assembly reserved to TEDDY members, will take place to update the participants on its activities carried out this year and plan the next initiatives for the upcoming 2023.
