SOCIETY: 6th edition of the UNICEF national consultation of 6-18 year olds


The Community of Saint-Martin and its Directorate of the Territorial Observatory for Child Protection have embarked on the National Consultation of 6-18 year olds organized by UNICEF with the theme 'Poverty and social exclusion' .

Since 2013, more than 100.000 children and young people have already given their opinion on the exercise of their rights in France. UNICEF France sets up every two years a national consultation of 6 to 18 year olds to measure the application of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child in daily life: in the family, in schools, in the city, etc. It allows children and adolescents to express themselves and take part in decisions that concern them.

For this sixth edition, the national consultation will focus particularly on the perception of children and young people regarding “poverty and social exclusion”. All children and adolescents aged 6 to 18 in mainland France and overseas are invited to use their voice by participating in this consultation, which opened on October 17, 2023 and will be available until March 15, 2024. The National Consultation is presented in the form of an electronic questionnaire comprising approximately 140 questions aimed at children and adolescents in Saint-Martin (see information). The goal is clear and announced from the outset by UNICEF France: “To be able to defend your rights, we want to have your opinion on your everyday life, your hobbies, your health, your relationships with your family, your friends ( e)s, but also your city and your school. No one will be able to know what you answered: the questionnaire is completely anonymous and confidential. Feel free to answer as you wish, or not to answer. Thanks to your responses and those of thousands of other participants, UNICEF France will publish a report that you will be able to read from November 2024 on the website dedicated to the National Consultation. For any other information, here is the link to the dedicated website and the dedicated email address where you can ask your questions to UNICEF representatives. _VX
