Global Child Forum
Transforming children’s lives together
We believe the best way to invest in children’s potential is through the power of partnerships.
Global Child Forum is fortunate to have a committed group of public and private partners who enhance our work with their unique capabilities. We focus on building long-term, mutually beneficial strategic partnerships that can deliver results for our efforts and value for society.
Our global network of companies and partnerships ensures that no company is alone in addressing issues related to the challenges of safeguarding and advancing children’s rights.
In 2020, Global Child Forum joined the World Benchmarking Alliance. We´re proud to be one of their Allies, in good company with other organizations also striving to shape the private sectors’ contribution to achieving the SDGs.
Please contact us if you are interested in exploring partnership opportunities.
We hope you’ll join us.

Business has a huge impact on children’s lives and their perspectives on business matter. Together with Global Child Forum and the Boston Consulting Group we created a guide for how to incorporate children’s voices into businesses. We hope it will enable many other companies to start working with children’s rights.
Business Sounding Board
Some of the world’s most influential companies,
challenging our thinking and helping us develop our tools and services.
Åsne Burgess Øyehaug
Previous Social Responsibility Manager, Norsk Hydro
Through the Business Sounding Board, Norsk Hydro supported Global Child Forum in 2021/2022 by providing feedback on a range of initiatives and new tools available to companies to improve their respect for child rights. As a bonus, the engagement with Global Child Forum challenged Norsk Hydro's thinking, broadened perspectives and brought new ideas to work.
To reach your targets in implementing the SDGs, you need to ensure you understand your company’s impact on children and on child rights. The Global Child Forum Business Academy is designed to support your company in understanding and assessing your impact on children and become successful in reaching your SDG targets. It´s an exclusive training programme for you who want to equip your company with knowledge and tools to integrate a child rights perspective in your operations. The programme focuses on peer-to-peer networking and collaboration in a small group to solve real problems together, under the guidance of the programme and with inspiration from companies who have come some way in their journey and can share their experience
