National Forum 2020

Children’s Week Council of Australia is thrilled to host a national conversation with incoming National Children’s Commissioner, Anne Hollonds, on Wednesday 28 October 2020 at 3pm (Sydney daylight saving time).

This year the theme for Children’s Week is: UNCRC Article 15: Children have the right to meet together and join groups and organisations as long as it does not stop other people from enjoying their rights. In exercising their rights, children have the responsibility to respect the rights, freedom and reputations of others.

This will be Ms Hollonds first opportunity to introduce herself in her new role, and share her vision and aspirations for Australia’s children.

In the conversation, CWCoA Secretary Julie Hourigan Ruse will explore with Anne how children’s right to connect safely with others has been impacted by drought, bushfire, flood and pandemic across the nation this year.
