Join second half of a two-part series of events on the incorporation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and hear from individuals and groups who played a vital part of securing the UNCRC (Incorporation)(Scotland) Bill.

It will be co-chaired by Josh Kennedy MSYP, the Chair of the Scottish Youth Parliament, and Louise King, the Director of the Children’s Rights Alliance for England, part of Just for Kids Law, and current ROCK Chair.
