Situated in the context of the children’s rights, this study involves children from nine countries and four continents in philosophical discussions about child and childhood. In a previous study, two of the authors explored in what kind of society children would like to live. The study revealed, though not explicitly stated by the children, that they did not see themselves as active agents in society. The present study addresses this issue directly and aims to investigate what children think childhood is and what their place in society is or should be. The study offers opportunities to explore issues around children’s voice and participation that will have implications for education and educators in the area of education for citizenship, and beyond.
