World Drowning Prevention Day – Children's parliament
To commemorate the first World Drowning Prevention Day, we organised a child parliament in different blocks of Sundarbans, West Bengal. Here are some snippets from our discussions.
We in association with CINI took a children’s human rights perspective and organised several child parliaments to promote decision-making processes that are more collaborative and inclusive for children. We created an enabling environment for these children to voice their ideas, thoughts, and feelings. Unsurprisingly, an impressive number of bright and inspiring children are interested in influencing decisions that affect their lives. Their ideas ranged from obvious to simple to innovative solutions to tackle the drowning problem in the region.
