The UNCRC has launched its call for submissions as part of a global public consultation to help feed into and guide the discussions of the 2021 Day of General Discussion (DGD) on Children's Rights and Alternative Care. The deadline for submissions is 14 June 2021. 

For more information about the background and scope of this DGD, please review the DGD Concept Note.

For more information on how to provide a submission or participate in the process, please review the Guidelines on participation and submissions. Both adults and children are encouraged to contribute to this process.

In addition to written or video submissions, children and young people are also invited to contribute their views and ideas via a separate survey, developed by members of the DGD Child and Youth Advisory Team, in partnership with researchers from the International Institute for Child Rights and Development (IICRD) and a number of civil society organisations. The deadline to complete the survey is 31 May 2021.
