When: 14:00 - 16:00, Wednesday 30 August 2023 Where: Zoom This event is being organised by The Human Rights Consortium Scotland
It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.
This session has been organised by the Human Rights Consortium Scotland in partnership with Voluntary Health Scotland and the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE) and will have a particular focus on the right to health and associated issues in the Human Rights Bill Consultation.
Come along to learn more about why the consultation matters, how it relates to the right to health, and how you might want to respond.
The Scottish Government has published the consultation for its Human Rights Bill. This is one of the biggest steps forward in human rights in Scotland because the Bill will embed major international human rights treaties and the right to a healthy environment into Scots law.
This could make it much easier for people to name and claim all their rights and drive a shift towards human rights-based decision-making - if it is done correctly.
The Human Rights Consortium wants as many civil society organisations as possible to make their voices heard in the consultation process. Come along to this session to learn more about why the consultation matters, how it relates to your work, and how you might want to respond. They'll be translating the legal jargon and giving you the tools you need to take part.
