Why Children’s Worlds?
The project recognises that children’s rights are fundamental to children having a good childhood and good future life chances.
Nevertheless, the recognition of children’s rights is only a preliminary step in providing the kind of environmental setting needed for children to make the best of their lives.
One of the most important factors in assessing whether a particular environment is conducive to children attaining their best potential is the perception of their own subjective sense of well-being. This is best done by asking children directly and by allowing them to give an assessment of their own well-being.
