About Singapore Children's Forum
The UNCRC is the most widely ratified international treaty, and Singapore signed it in 1995. An important pillar of the UNCRC is child participation — providing a space to hear the voices of children and youth.
In 2010, the ASEAN member states organised the first ASEAN Children’s Forum to encourage child participation.
This forum rotates to each ASEAN country once every two years.
Singapore Children’s Society decided to organise our own local edition, called the Singapore Children’s Forum, in the alternate years in between.
