Children's Parliament are currently running several different projects in several communities across Scotland. To keep track of so much activity, they have taken to the blogosphere.

StreetsAhead Tranent

Throughout the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design 2016, StreetsAhead Tranent is exploring children's views and experiences of their local community and built environment; examining how these factors impact on children's rights and wellbeing.

StreetsAhead Tranent is supported by East Lothian Council, Historic Scotland, Festival of Architecture, Heritage Lottery Fund, Tranent Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme, East Lothian Health and Social Care Partnership.

Imagining Aberdeen

Three hundred children from Bramble Brae Primary, Manor Park Primary, Riverbank Primary and Tullos Primary are Imagining Aberdeen as a place where children are healthy, happy and safe. Children have been considering life in the community, at home and at school and exploring the idea of human dignity. Soon 20 of these children - the Imagineers - will take part in a Mural Project which captures children's vision for the city.

Imagining Aberdeen is supported by Aberdeen City Council.

Children's Parliament Investigates...

Through the lens of children's human rights children from 8 schools across Edinburgh are exploring what children need to be healthy, happy and safe at home, school and in the community. In each school a team of CP Investigators are exploring children's perspectives on bullying. Their ideas and investigations will be shared with the City of Edinburgh Council to help influence the Council's understanding of bullying in schools.

Children's Parliament Investigates... is supported by Big Lottery: Young Start Fund.
