A global consultation with children is taking place for the upcoming General Comment on children’s rights in relation to the digital environment.

Western Sydney University (in collaboration with 5Rights) is working in partnership with the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child to seek children and young people’s views. The findings will be analysed and compiled as a formal submission to the Committee.

Whilst the timeframe of these consultations is May to July 2019, the University has confirmed that this is flexible and later submissions can still be fed into the process.
