Have you considered embedding children's human rights in your organisation or practice?
The Year of Childhood is a year-long celebration of childhood running throughout 2021 and hosted by Children’s Parliament. During the year they are exploring childhood through the lens of children’s human rights, creating opportunities to share rights-based practice in an atmosphere of optimism and confidence. On 16th March, in a landmark moment for children's rights, the Scottish Parliament voted to incorporate the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) into Scottish Law. It is also Children’s Parliament’s 25th birthday year and they have a lot of learning to share.
One of their campaigns is the Unfeartie movement. Since 2017, more than 1000 people, including doctors, nurses, teachers, parents, carers, civil servants, local authority workers, third sector practitioners, United Nations deputy high commissioners, and even the First Minister of Scotland, have pledged to talk about children’s issues, make a difference in children’s lives, and speak up for, and stand alongside, children.
On Thursday 20 May at 10am we will be joined by Children's Parliament to talk about how we can embed children's human rights within our own work. We will hear more about the Unfearties and discuss the upcoming Summer Family Adventure, a collaboration between Children's Parliament and Fathers Network Scotland.
