The Children's Crusade


Meeting day for children and families

On July 4th, in certain spaces within the European Parliament, we organized a meeting day entirely dedicated to children, titled "The Children's Crusade."

Led by the artist Felice Ardito, young participants along with their families engaged in a workshop encompassing art and play, addressing some of the most crucial issues for our—especially their—future. Too many stories of migration and poverty still involve not only adults but particularly children, and it is imperative to preserve their memory in order to act for good immediately.

With "The Children's Crusade," we pursued an important objective of ours: seeking new and creative ways to involve families and younger individuals in politics. This involved discussing topics that directly affect them and utilizing approaches that make not only the subject of discussion clearer and more understandable but also the institutional work that follows.
