Every third person on the planet today is a child. In some regions, almost 50% of the population is under 15 years of age. Therefore any serious company or government sustain ability agenda must include a strong child rights perspective. Our fourth international Global Child Forum at the Royal Palace in Stockholm focused on partnerships for children’s rights – today and for the future – as a way of advancing the children’s rights and sustainability agenda. This Forum Report provides highlights from the presentations, panels and ActionLab discussions.

On Wednesday, April 11, the 10th Global Child Forum 2018 was held at the Stockholm Royal Palace. Over 300 participants from around the world gathered to discuss child rights issues. Participants represented global companies, financial institutions, civil society, the UN, academia and government.
Global Child Forum and the Boston Consulting Group initiated the Corporate Sector and Children’ Rights Benchmark study series in 2013 to fill a gap in research. The purpose of the series has been to develop a children’s rights benchmark for the corporate sector and to enable tracking of progress over time on how children’s rights are addressed by business. The data referred to in this reporting has been compiled from one global and five regional studies conducted between 2013-2016; the Nordic region, the Middle East and Northern Africa; Southern Africa, South America and Southeast Asia. In total, the reporting covers 2500 companies across nine different industries.
