Every child should live in a safe environment. In a city where a child can play, learn and grow up. In a city where the government listens and hears what children and adolescents say, guarantee the rights of young citizens and actively involve them in decision making.
Support for adolescents and youth is one of the global priorities of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) in the world and in the Republic of Belarus. We are pleased to see that our joint efforts with the Government and local authorities are yielding positive results, such as the creation of the Child and Adolescent Friendly Cities platform. Today Belarus is already becoming an example for other countries interested in creating a similar platform and wishing to borrow the vast experience of Belarusian cities in this matter.
