5th Symposium​

Giving children a voice: how can we give children a role in defining public policy?

Speakers: Franco Carnevale, Dr. Gilles Julien et Hélène (Sioui) Trudel

Children do not vote. It is therefore vital that we give them the opportunity to have their voices heard in order to influence public policy. This session will create a rich discussion between a group of children, a social pediatrician, an expert in pediatric ethic, and a legal consultant. Michel Venne, Director of the Institut du Nouveau Monde, will facilitate the discussion and help to establish a concrete action plan.

Speakers: Franco Carnevale, Dr Gilles Julien et Hélène (Sioui) Trudel

Special guest: Valérie Gauthier

Moderator: Michel Venne

Franco Carnevale talks about children’s agency and ethical issues in health care.

Valérie Gauthier, student and mentor at the Garage à Musique, shares her views on the place dedicated to youth.
