The Children and Young People's Commissioner Scotland is looking for young people aged between 15 and 17 to take part in the 2019's Human Rights Gathering.

The Gathering will take place in Edinburgh between Friday 15 and Sunday 17 November 2019. It'll be a weekend residential where young people get to make a real difference to the human rights of children and young people by feeding back on the Commissioners’ past work and helping in the process of creating the Commissioner’s new Strategic Plan for 2020-2024.

The young people participating will also be involved in celebrating the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, happening on 20th November 2019.
