Free text This bilingual document (English and Chinese) is a report of the second Children's council (2004). This project started in 2003, during the third year of Child Ambassadors' Scheme. This last project was initiated by Against Child Abuse, the Hong Kong Committee for UNICEF and the Hong Kong Committee on Children's Rights to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the UNCRC coming into effect. The organizing Committee and 20 Child Ambassadors joined hands to arouse public awareness on the UNCRC and promote children's rights in Hong Kong. To go further on this way, they organized in 2003 the first Children's Council to give the children an appropriate platform to express their views in matters concerning themselves. The Children's council 2004 was then the second one. 60 Child Councilors aged from 12 to 18 came from 26 schools. They adopted three motions which are published in this report.
