RightSpace is about you and the opportunity to comment, add content, take part in key conversations and look towards the future of young people's participation. As you will see from the site, people behind it are young activists and researchers, practitioners, managers and leaders and researchers working both locally and nationally.
Online and national event space
We hope RightSpace offers you - children, young people and adults - to come together on the web and through a national event on Tuesday 26 October 2010 in Sheffield to explore the promotion of children and young people’s human rights:
- To celebrate and share learning on where good things are happening
- To be informed by people who are involved in promoting the human rights of children and young people and who are out there doing it
- To reflect on what’s happening out there and how it affects children and young people’s lives
- To create an open space to explore deeply issues arising from the practice and theory of participation
- To explore the potential for active collaborations to underpin and support the human rights of children and young people as equal citizens now
You can get involved by:
Signing up and creating a profile - we'll be adding more interactive features to the site over the coming months where you'll be able to connect with fellow travelers on the journey to promote the human rights of children and young people.
Coming to the event on 26th October - when you can hear from some great speakers, but also set the agenda in open space sessions in the afternoon.
Tagging your messages #rightspace on Twitter - and if you're not already on Twitter, you can find out more about how to join in this short guide.
