A heart for Children.
A head for Business.
Global Child Forum is a Swedish non-profit foundation with headquarters in the heart of Stockholm. We bring together global leaders from business, civil society, academia and government in order to spur action for social change around children’s rights. Our vision is a sustainable world where children’s rights are respected and supported by all stakeholders in society. In particular, we focus on the power of business to be a driver of change, and we encourage businesses to take approaches in their operations and their communities that best advance children’s rights.
Our work is underpinned by the United Nations (UN) Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Children’s Rights and Business Principles, as well as by our own research and tools.

Global Child Forum was initiated by H.M. the King and H.M. the Queen of Sweden in 2009 as part of their long-standing commitment to children’s issues. Originally called World Child and Youth Forum, the organization’s name was later shortened to Global Child Forum in 2013. Since the organisation’s founding, the Royal Family has maintained a strong and active role in Global Child Forum, participating in both our regional and global forums.
