Rights Now - young people getting a better deal?

Right now the UK Government is reporting to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) on its progress for children and young people's rights. Children and young people have basic rights that are protected by most of the governments across the world so that children and young people living in that country can get a better deal. At the Youth Summit we have been asking people: "If you were on the committee on the rights of the child and had the power to tell the government off, what would be your top issues?" These were some of the answers:

The Speech... (feedback from day 1....)

Well, the hard part is now over.. not the greatest thing having to wake up to give a speech infront of a 150 odd people. Actually, to be honest it wasn't as bad as we anticipated as things worked out okay in the end. It was a mixture between excitement and nerves. Oh well.. all over now so the rest of the day to look forward to. You can see the slides from our feedback this morning below:

breakfast & bruises

second day. too early and pulling the suicase down the stairs was bound to end badly. we arrived just on time and sat down to listen to the first and second speeches. health & education. i found these too long but some of the points raised were important and useful, needing to be taken into consideration for the future. in particular, the way we interact with adults and vice versa about drugs, sex and alcohol abuse .. however!! from the gala dinner last night, someone said we shouldn't be called 'young people' because it separates us into an alien race and this isn't right.
