Created: 17/02/2021, Updated: 18/02/2021
When: 3:00 - 5:00pm, Wednesday 03 March 2021 Where: Zoom Call, Anywhere with an internet connection, Online, KY6 2AL This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action, Fife‘s Third Sector Strategy Group
All are welcome to take part in the second of a series of sessions designed to inspire, challenge and support all who are trying to create a Fairer Fife with a particular emphasis on community action and engagement.
There is an old saying that it takes a village to raise a child. In April 2021, the UN Convention on Rights of the Child will be adopted into Scots Law. The Children’s Parliament have designated it as the “Year of Childhood”.
In this session, their co-director Cathy McCulloch will lead off with a provocation to explore childhood through the lens of children’s human rights – and ask what it will take to make these rights a reality in Fife’s communities in order to create a future in which all our children can thrive?
The session will also include a Q & A, small breakout groups and opportunities for participants to share stories, insights and ideas for action. It will take place via Zoom.
