Knowledge of Rights & Curriculum for life
The Youth Forum basis a lot of its work on rights including the UN Convention on the rights of the child.
We believe that more work needs done to educate young people on their rights.
We are also of the view that more needs done to educate young people with regards to life skills.
These important areas are often missing in the formal education system.
We are suggesting that:
– adults are encouraged to respect children’s rights
– Make information on rights available in school; youth groups and social media
– Schools should cover topics including finance, sex and relationships, rights and politics as part of school curriculum.
– Prioritise Education on children and young people’s rights education for all
