The 2018 Laureates and Leaders for Children Summit focused on Children on the Move.
The Summit revisited the definition and key drivers of children on the move and in crisis, rapidly becoming a norm in our changing world, while examining specific achievable actions to prioritise and protect children from exploitation, trafficking, slavery and abuse and ensure their education. Highlighting what is working, the Summit explored what can be accelerated, what was missing and more importantly the role government, business, technology, media, academia, faith leaders and individuals can play. Through a series of lively interactive dialogues, Summit participants discussed ideas and actions to protect children on the move. Young people’s voices were central – youth displaced by conflict and climate change/natural disasters, and survivors of exploitation, alongside Laureates and Leaders – shared their stories, experiences, ideas and inspiration for change. Summit participants contributed to an action plan for children and youth in crisis.
