Coming of age - let's identify what's changed?

It has to be worth mentioning to all present at the Youth Summit that the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child has come of age and is now 18! So what can we say has changed during that time? This is an excellent example of Article 12 in practice - young people having their say and being listened to, what we need to do is make sure their requests are acted upon! Good luck to all present!

Expectations of the day

The first questions of the day! The reporters have been out asking young people who are involved in the conference and delegates who are arriving what their expectations of the conference are and what they are hoping to achieve.   What are your expectations of today? What are you hoping to achieve? 10am Monday   Young People:  I expect a high standard.  I want to let adults know about how we do things differently to other people. I’m looking forward to seeing other people’s presentations.
