The globally recognised day for children’s rights was marked by CYC with an event at County Hall on Monday 21st of November.
A range of key decision makers and partners joined CYC members including Council Directors, Senior Politicians, representatives from Welsh Government Ministerial Office, 3rd sector partners and the Children’s Commissioners Office.
As well as championing children’s rights participants were served afternoon tea and played a range of rights based games.
The busy programme included showcasing the positive impact of the work developed by CYC in 2015/16, learning about Rights Respecting Schools, announcing youth priorities for Cardiff 2016, and recognising schools roll in this year’s Make Your Mark Programme.
CYC Chairperson Xinyu Ye (17) said ‘We think it is important to bring together key decision makers to raise awareness of the importance of children’s rights and highlight examples of work which comes as a result of children being able to have their rights met’
