Category: Incorporation, Awareness-raising


Children’s Parliament has launched the Year of Childhood 2021 to celebrate the forthcoming incorporation of the UNCRC into Scots law and the organisation’s 25th birthday.

The Year of Childhood aims to create an atmosphere of optimism and confidence for children and young people. A range of events, discussions and webinars will run across 2021 to inspire organisations to embed children’s rights-based practices.

The Year of Childhood plans to bring together a network of organisations, public bodies and individuals who are willing to pledge their support for incorporation of the UNCRC and share good practice in the delivery of children’s human rights.
