The Municipality of Växjö aims to provide children and adolescents with a good standard of living. They have the right to a safe, secure childhood as well as the opportunity for personal development.
They must be acknowledged and respected by all sectors of municipal activity. All decisions made at committee and board level are to be examined from a child's perspective. All children are considered equal, and should enjoy the same rights and opportunities, regardless of who they are and where they live.
We aim to make the Municipality of Växjö an attractive option for young people, as well as families with children and adolescents. We intend to provide good childcare, a varied choice of educational opportunities, desirable residential environments, and a broad selection of cultural and leisure activities.
Children and adolescents are to be treated with respect. They should also have the opportunity to exert influence. Everyone has the right to develop based on their own abilities. We aim to safeguard the commitment, creative ability, and critical thinking of our children and adolescents.
