|UNCRC panels destined for Scottish Parliament in the Autumn|
Over the past few months, Together and the Scottish Universities Insight Institute hosted four seminars on children's rights in law, practice and policy, sharing national international examples of good practice with a diverse group of delegates:
As part of this seminar series, Together have been working to ensure that children and young people play a key role and that key messages from the seminars are accessible to everyone. Together commissioned artists Joanna Boyce, Yonnie and Lyver to work our P6 pupils to present key messages in a creative and engaging way.
Three young people who had attended the seminars interpreted the key messages and themes then P6C pupils from Miss Stewardson's class - Arwen, Thomas, Alma, Luis, Eilidh, Isaac, Eamon and Rachel - worked closely with the artists to visualise the imagery suggested, for example 'rights in the clouds', 'a policy factory', 'a meadow of rights' and 'connected in a daisy chain.'
During the project on 7th, 8th and 9th of June, Miss Stewardson's whole class discussed and worked on visualising UNCRC articles, particularly Articles 42 Everyone should know about the UNCRC (finding ways to depict 42 of the articles) and 31 The right to play.
