Join Together’s State of Children’s Rights webinar series
Date: 17th September 2021
Together is pleased to announce that we will be hosting a series of webinars in October 2021 on the State of Children’s Rights in Scotland. The webinar series will offer practical guidance on implementing children’s rights-based approaches, provide support to overcome challenges and offer a space to share examples of promising practice ahead of the UNCRC (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill’s implementation.
Findings from the webinars will be shared in the State of Children’s Rights Report 2021 to create a wide range of case studies that illustrate how a rights-based approach can be taken and implemented into your own policy and practice.
Each webinar will be delivered in partnership with a member organisation(s) and will involve a presentation, Q&A and breakout group discussions on various children’s rights issues. The webinars will take place online via Zoom and are open to both Together members and non-members. See below for details of each webinar and how you can register your interest in taking part.
