Abstract: Giving children a voice, listening to their concerns and letting them participate in political, professional and social issues is not only asserted in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, but also offers an important orientation for decisions related to childhood, youth and family. The international research project Children's Worlds is designed in this spirit. For Switzerland, participating in the third survey wave, which involves research teams from 35 countries, was a great opportunity to generate knowledge about the needs and life situation of young people and to raise public awareness. The research team from the Institute of Childhood, Youth and Family at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) has been assigned the Swiss part of the study, which will be realized with the support of Fondation Botnar and the Office for Youth and Career Guidance of the Canton of Zurich. The ZHAW project is part of a worldwide project initiated and internationally coordinated with the support of the Jacobs Foundation. Children's Worlds has been running since 2011 and has set itself the task of closing research gaps on children's well-being and life situation by interviewing children themselves. By means of a thematically wide-ranging questionnaire, children between the ages of 8 and 12 can provide information on important aspects of their lives. The national report sums up findings from initial statistical analyses.
