Introducing Save the Children Sweden's Tool "Guide for the Civil Society to work with the private sector in favour of children's rights"

Save the Children Sweden invited its partners in the Latin America and Caribbean region to a two-day workshop in Lima, Peru, 7-8 August 2013. The main goal was to share experiences and test tools for civil society to work with the private sector in favour of children's rights.  The event provided an opportunity to introduce the Children's Rights and Business Principles and served as a platform for civil society organisations across the region to engage in dialogue and discuss experiences, opportunities and challenges in the dissemination and implementation of the Principles. The event brought together civil society delegates from Argentina, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela, and included  community-based movements, coalitions, foundations, and NGOs.  

This report summarizes the participants'  inputs and conclusions regarding their engagement with business on matters related to children’s rights.
