This year, Child 10 wants to learn and share the stories of the millions of children who live without papers - but not without rights. We are proud to partner with the City of Malmö to enhance the collaboration between the public sector and the civil society for children's rights. To enable change, we need to come together, and open up for new insights through unexpected meetings. Join us in our struggle to make the unheard voices of ignored children heard!

Around the globe, there are exceptional individuals who dedicate their lives and passion to prevent and end the violations of children´s rights. Many of them are working in extreme circumstances and are creating remarkable change for vulnerable children.
Imagine if we bring those unknown heroes together. All their knowledge and passion in one room. Just like G7, Child 10 gathers leaders to develop, share and spread powerful solutions to improve the world. The Child 10 Summit is an annual 48 hour exclusive face to face meeting in Sweden where the leaders meet their peers in a private setting. At the Child 10 Summit these child right heroes can take a deep breath, reflect over their work and being inspired. The aim is to enable strategizing and boost their leadership and impact.
The annual summit closes with the Child 10 Award, a ceremony to honor courage, leadership and passion. Invited guests are given the opportunity to celebrate the Awardees and learn more about innovative methods to prevent violations of children’s rights. During the ceremony, the Awardees are rewarded with a financial grant.
