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.

Special guest : Valérie Gauthier
Moderator : Michel Venne
