Children and Young People’s Rights

The Museums of World Culture's policy in terms of activities for children and young people is based on and emphasises the fundamental rights principles stipulated by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).

However, based on these fundamental principles, we have in our substantive operations chosen to use the following formulation - every child's and young person's right to a global history as a basis for navigating in the present and shaping a sustainable future - as a guiding principle.

In terms of methodology, a rights-based approach to our work involves the development of a conscious policy as regards 'A (world) culture for, with and by the children'. In order to highlight activities that will realise such aspects of content and methods, the Museums of World Culture will start to implement a Child and Youth Strategic Certification (BUS-certifiering) across our operations as of 2012.
