Children’s futures lie in the present - National Conference 2009

Conferenza nazionale infanzia e adolescenza 2009

Children’s futures lie in the present: this is the title of the National Conference on Childhood and Adolescence held in Naples from 18 to 20 November 2009.

Organised by the Ministry of Labour, Health and Social Policy and the Department of Family Policies, and in collaboration with Italy’s Parliamentary Commission on Childhood and Adolescence, the National Conference aims to be ‘an institutional time for listening, elaboration and participation on issues that concern not only “professionals in these industries”, but also children, young people and families’, an important occasion that is ‘open to participation from all’.

Wednesday 18 November, the official opening of the Conference will be preceded by the celebration of World Children’s Day, which this year is dedicated to the protection of minors in the media.
