Day 5 of 5: Culture and Identity: 100 years and beyond – NICCY Youth Panel’s Child Rights perspective to Culture and Identity

Day 5 of 5:
The centenary year since the creation of Northern Ireland, is for some, a cause for celebration as a new region of the United Kingdom was born. However, for others it is 100 years of division of Ireland.  In recognition of the UNCRC and children and young people’s rights to celebrate their culture, NICCY and its Youth Panel looked at the right of the child to explore and celebrate their cultural identity and to recognise the right of others to celebrate theirs.

The Youth Panel’s statement explores culture and identity within a child rights context and includes a series of calls to decision makers about how they can support children and young people in celebrating their culture and identity in this centenary year and beyond.

The digital content will provide the opportunity for young people to share their thoughts and ideas about culture and identity in the past, in the present and in the future.
