Agenda 2030 for Children: End Violence Solutions Summit

Frequently Asked Questions

The End Violence Solutions Summit is a call to action bringing together governments, the UN, civil society, the private sector, academics and children themselves to share bold solutions for preventing and responding to violence against boys and girls.

The primary goal of the Summit is to catalyse action towards achieving SDG16.2 and related targets by convening Member States, End Violence partners; WePROTECT Global Alliance, the global network of violence prevention experts and research practitioners; and children themselves to take stock of progress and define next steps.

The three objectives of the Solutions Summit are to:
  • Raise awareness about children’s protection from violence (SDG 16.2 and related targets) while increasing commitments to act
  • Showcase solutions around the world while enabling technical discussions and applying the INSPIRE framework and the Model National Response
  • Celebrate ‘pathfinding country’ success, encouraging new partners to join the global movement to end violence against children
In addition to addressing broad topics of collaboration and why investment in violence prevention is so critical, the Summit will focus on seven priority areas of interest around violence prevention, including:
  • social protection
  • gender-sensitive approaches
  • data and violence against children
  • online violence
  • children in crisis and conflict
  • corporal punishment in the home and school
  • and children’s rights and participation
The Summit will include ministers and senior level representatives from all stakeholders in End Violence. Governments including End Violence pathfinders, those  in discussion to become pathfinders,  governments that have signed onto the WePROTECT Global Alliance, UN Agencies, civil society organisations including faith-based groups, academics, foundations, private sector leaders and children. The Summit will include a maximum of 300 people and will also be livestreamed for those who wish to participate from home.
