Global Child Forum
Business Academy

What is the Global Child Forum Business Academy?

The Business Academy is an exclusive training programme designed to equip your company with the knowledge and tools needed to integrate a child rights perspective into your operations.

The programme focuses on peer-to-peer networking and collaboration in a small group, with the aim of solving real problems together. This takes place under the guidance of our experts, with inspiration from companies who have progressed on their journey and can share their experience.

The Business Academy covers business-critical issues, linking these to children’s rights perspectives and highlighting the potential for both negative and positive impact on children’s lives. The issues are also clearly linked to other sustainability perspectives, such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

The programme of workshops is carried out throughout the year.
