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 was 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.
The hearing, chaired by the co-chairs of the Working Group in charge of the “Guide”, was 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, toke place to update the participants on TEDDY’s activities during 2022 and plan the next initiatives for the upcoming 2023.
