Protecting the Rights of Children on the Move in Europe: What is the Role of Philanthropy?

This event has ended.

16 November 2016 Stockholm, Sweden

Elevate Children Funders Group and theĀ World Childhood Foundation co-hosted a meeting amongst European funders focused on the unfolding refugee crisis in Europe and the role of the philanthropy sector in supporting the care, protection and rights of children on the move. Meeting objectives included: (i) Take stock of how funders in Europe have responded to the continued arrival of refugees and migrants, specifically children and youth, in European receiving countries; and (ii) Identify how a collective of foundations can support funders in Europe to address both the opportunities and challenges and to effectively support the care, protection and rights of children on the move.
