Child Talks

As part of the World Children’s Day celebrations the Ombudsman for Children's Office developed an educational speaker’s event called Child Talks. The main aim of this project is to elevate the voice of young people and provide a positive platform for all young people to tell stories that are personal to them.

Child Talks 2021

This year to celebrate World Children's Day, the Ombudsman for Children's Office hosted Child Talks 2021, our event where children and young people up to age 18 are given a platform to talk about children’s rights and the issues that matter to them.

Our incredible speakers - Dariusz, Franny, Anjelica, Ella, Precious, Darragh, Bobby and Molly - shared their inspiring stories on topics including climate change, mental health, fast fashion, Direct Provision, gender equality, life with scoliosis, and safety on the roads. You can learn more about our speakers here.

Child Talks 2021 was hosted by our brilliant past speakers Katherine Amusan and Oisin Putt.

The hybrid event was broadcast from the RDS, Dublin on November 19th and is available to watch below.
