Starting November 1st until the 26thyou can participate in the conversation about Child Rights. Young people are engaging in a national social media campaign using #RightToBeHeard and #MyRightsCRC. They're posting pictures, videos, and quotes answering these questions:
What does your ideal Canada look like?
Do you feel your rights are being respected?
What would make the world better?
If you post on social media using one of the hashtags, remember that it is public online and be sure to always use safe online practices. For tips see Cybertip.ca and ProtectKids.ca. You can always send us an email, with a quote, from you, about the issues you think young people are facing in Canada.
We also want to say thank you to the New Brunswick Youth Voice Committee and the B.C. Representative for Children and Youth’s Social Media Youth Team for consulting on the development of this campaign.
All of this is leading up to the Canadian Coalition for the Rights of Children's submission of an alternative report to the United Nations discussing how Canada is doing in regard to child rights. By engaging in this campaign, you are showing that child and youth rights in Canada are important! Learn more about what the alternative report.
