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.

 
We believe it is essential to provide children with an environment in which they can fully blossom and attain their highest potential. Children require an atmosphere, in which they feel ‘good’ with their lives, can follow their own predispositions and are prompted to bring out the best of themselves.
 

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.
