Observatory for the Promotion of Childhood

One of the main missions of the Pere Tarrés Foundation is the protection and defense of the social rights and well-being of children. With this will we work intensely from the fields of social action and research. In this sense, we have initiated a line of studies on the social promotion of childhood in fields such as health, education, participation, free time and culture. All, with the shared purpose of the different departments of the Foundation to promote children and strengthen their closest environment (family and professionals who have a relationship with them) and social transformation (transformation of society and creation of communities empowered, as opportunities for the exercise of rights).

The Pere Tarrés Observatory for the Promotion of Childhood prepares reports to study the living conditions of children in Catalonia and identify the factors of change and improvement in their environments.

Goals:

  • Capture the current state of childhood in different areas, both in Catalonia and Spain.
  • Provide content, depth and discursive coherence to the entity's programs, services and projects in the area of childhood.
  • Translate this discourse to specific actions that transform reality and improve the living conditions of boys and girls.
