#TellTheUN your experiences of life in Scotland
18 August 2015
The United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child is sending a representative to Scotland to find out about young people’s lives in our country― and they’d like to hear your views.
If you’re under 18, you can use the hashtag #TellTheUN on Twitter to highlight your experiences – good or bad – of life in Scotland. You could also include what you think needs to happen to improve access to your rights. We’ll then send them to UN representative Amal Aldoseri ahead of her visit to Scotland on Thursday 3 September.
Topics which you might want to think about could include:
- your school
- your community
- your experiences of health services
- your family
- your work.
Here are some things that young people have already highlighted to us:
You can send us your experiences by email, or over Twitter by using the hashtag #TellTheUN. We’ll make sure your views get through to Amal. While we can't send on individual details, we'll raise the general issues you share with us with her.
