Children as Actors for Transforming Society (CATS)

With CATS we create a society where children, youth and adults are collaborating in mutual respect and on a equal base. Children can influence and participate in society but are often forgotten. Every summer a week-long conference is being held in Caux, Switzerland.


CATS models, celebrates and strengthens practice of collaboration between children and adults. Coming from all over the world, children (and adults)learn about their fundamental rights and skills and how to participate in changing their behaviours and mentalities. They literally bring into practice an inclusive world on a small scale. As a result, they can bring their experiences into their own communities.


The 2018 CATS Caux Conference took place from July 30th until August 5th. The theme was ‘SAFE TOGETHER, Working to end violence against children’. Click here to know more about the CATS 2018 activities and outcome.

In 2018 CATS will celebrate the premiere of a CATS Conference taking place both in France as in India.
