Welcome to BICON 2021
BICON is the leading regional conference in Asia focussed on children and youth without parental care and their rights. The 2021 conference, rescheduled for 8-9 December, will be hosted on Changemakers for Children.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues with such severity across Asia, the impact on children is particularly acute. The attention of practitioners and policy-makers is rightly on responding to the emergency at hand. Due to these circumstances, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the fourth BICON on Alternative Care for Children in Asia which had been scheduled to take place online on 26 and 27 May 2021.
BICON is rescheduled for 8 and 9 December 2021 when practitioners, policy-makers, academics and young people with lived experience of care will come together to discuss systemic care reform in Asia. We stand in solidarity with all those professionals and families in Asia and across the world who are working to protect children at this challenging time.
