Children and adolescents have needs and interests that are special and multifaceted; they are not “miniature adults”. Instead, they are experts on their own lives. They can speak knowledgably about what they think is indispensable for having a decent life growing up well – and about the things they can do without.

Those are some of the key findings from the international study “Children’s Worlds”. The brochure at hand summarizes the results of the survey that was conducted as part of the study’s current German wave by Professor Sabine Andresen and her team from the Goethe University in Frankfurt (Main), supported by the Bertelsmann Stiftung.
