The plenary session of the City Council regulates the participation of Cartagena's children and adolescents (30/08/2018)

The plenary session of the City Council of Cartagena, gathered this morning with ordinary character, under the presidency of the mayor, Ana Belén Castejón, has unanimously approved of all the political groups the regulation of the Municipal Council for Children and Adolescents, proposed by the Municipal government.

The purpose of this council is to promote actions that favor social awareness towards the promotion and defense of the rights of the child, offering children a channel of institutional participation.

The council will have a technical and consultative nature and will be composed of 22 minors representing various sectors and associations, municipal technicians, representatives of political groups and UNICEF.

Likewise, one of its aims is to promote institutional coordination in the implementation of policies aimed at children and adolescents in the municipality.

As reflected in its explanatory statement, child participation is a right and one of the four fundamental principles of the Convention on the Rights of the Child approved by the United Nations on November 20, 1989.

This convention establishes that children must be able to form their own judgment, as well as the right to freely express their opinion about the situations that affect them, taking into account the child's opinions according to their age and maturity.

The recognition of the right to participation is based on the proposal promoted by the mayor, Ana Belén Castejón, in her capacity as Social Services responsible, considers children as protagonists in the social environments in which they participate, active agents in the construction of knowledge and daily experience, with the capacity to defend their own rights and to fulfill responsibilities;

so that childhood is given the "status" of a citizen and ceases to be an object to become a subject of rights.

It also explains that the competence to participate is acquired gradually, with practice, and children and adolescents can not be expected, upon reaching adulthood, to become responsible and participative adults without any prior experience in the skills. and responsibilities that this entails.
