September has arrived and our countdown to the UNCRC’s Day of General Discussion 2018 begins! At the end of September, 12 child Human Rights Defenders from East Lothian, Scotland will travel to Geneva to participate in the DGD which will take place at the UN Palais des Nations.
All 12 children have spent the past six months exploring what it means to be a Human Rights Defender, what children across Scotland are doing to defend their rights and what adults can do to empower and protect child Human Rights Defenders. In the run up to the DGD, we’ll be sharing the children’s journey over the past six months. Join us on Twitter to learn more about the children involved, what they have been up to as part of this programme and why they’re looking forward to being part of the DGD.
