Register for 'It’s All Rights: The Human Rights Bill Consultation and Children’s Rights'
Date: 23rd August 2023
Join us online to learn more about why the consultation matters, how it relates to children's rights, and how you might want to respond.
Date: Wednesday 6th September 2023
Time: 09:00 - 10:30
The Scottish Government has published the consultation for the Scottish Human Rights Bill. This is one of the biggest steps forward in human rights in Scotland, because the Bill will embed major international human rights treaties and the right to a healthy environment into Scots law.
This could make it so much easier for people to name and claim all their rights, and drive a shift towards human rights-based decision making - if it is done right.
We want as many civil society organisations as possible to make their voices heard in the consultation process. Come along to this session to learn more about why the consultation matters, how it relates to your work, and how you might want to respond. We’ll be translating the legal jargon and giving you the tools you need to take part.
This session has been organised in partnership with the Human Rights Consortium Scotland and will have a particular focus around children and young people’s rights.
This session is part of the ‘It’s All Rights’ series. Every session in the series covers the same core content. Then, some of the sessions also have a specific focus, for example, this one includes specific content on children and young people’s rights. You can find details of the other sessions in the series here
