The British Institute for Human Rights has been asked by the Equality and Human Rights Commission to hold three exciting events for young people this summer. These events aim to empower you to know more about your human rights and how you can get your voice heard when deciding whether those rights have been respected and protected.

BIHR have an action packed agenda including a session on human rights history, a crash course in human rights law, a real life look at how our human rights law protects young people’s rights, and a debate about how you can get involved and get your voice heard on the issues that matter to you.

You’ll get a chance to try out a new set of resources about young people’s human rights and tell us what you’d like them to say. There will also be the opportunity to tell us what other info and support you need to help you find out more about your rights and have your voice heard.

You! The events are open to 11-18 year olds from across England and Wales. You can come as individual, with your friends, siblings, cousins etc.
