The Children and Young People’s Panel on Europe was established in August 2018. It is made up of 19 children and young people aged 8-19 from across Scotland. All members were too young to vote in the 2016 EU referendum but are clear that their voices matter and they have a right to be heard.
Working with Together and Children in Scotland, members of the Panel identified their priority issues in relation to Brexit and made recommendations for the Scottish Government, UK Government and EU decision-makers.
The Panel's report "Listen to Us" containing their recommendations was published in February 2019 and covers topics including:
- Opportunities to work and travel abroad
- EU Funding
- Economy, trade and jobs
- Children and young people's rights
