BANGALORE: The metropolitan city of Bangalore will bear witness to a ‘Children’s Ward Sabha’.It is being conducted by the elected BBMP corporator of Vijnana Nagar Ward (Ward no. 81), Geetha Vivekanand on Thursday, February 23 between 10 to 1 pm at the Vibhuthipura Veerasimhasana Samsthana Mutta School located

in the ward.

The Children’s Ward Sabha is a critical platform for enabling children’s participation in their elected local city government at the ward level. About 600-700 children are expected to participate, which will include children from migrant communities, school going children, child representatives of ward-level children’s organisations and other marginalised groups

of children.

Elected corporators from other wards of BBMP, the City Mayor Sharadamma, MLA Nandish Reddy, various government officials, organisations and groups working on children’s issues will also participate.

Children from across the ward have spent several weeks identifying their issues and prioritising them for action. These issues include those relating to education, health, protection, transport and cleanliness that impact both children and adults in the ward. During this Sabha, children will raise awareness about these issues among the government officials and elected adult representatives present, and will demand for action from their elected leaders. The Children’s Ward Sabha is an open event.
