It’s thirty-one years since the United Nations formerly adopted the treaty known as Rights of The Child, and this World Children’s Day, we are celebrating by asking young people in Cornwall to help shape our future.

Together for Families, part of Cornwall Council, are launching the Carbon Neutral Youth Ambassadors Network which aims to give young people an opportunity to talk directly with policy makers at the council and wider afield.

The Carbon Neutral Cornwall (CNC) Youth Ambassador Network will also be used to share ideas, get involved in regional and national campaigns, discuss new initiatives and to learn about the opportunities available in the green energy sector.

The CNC Youth Ambassador Network aims to give young people of all ages the opportunity to:

  • Share their ideas with other young people and be supported to take actions forward
  • Get involved in regional and national campaigns and competitions
  • Discuss and learn about issues that matter to them including green careers
  • Give young people the opportunity to talk and be listened to by decision makers in the council and wider, and
  • Be recognized for their efforts.

Cornwall Council Together for Families celebrate UNICEF World Children Day

This year's theme for World Children Day, is Investing in our Future, with the key focus for the day being to promote the rights of the child.

The four main principles of the rights of the child are:

  • Non-discrimination
  • Best Interests
  • Life Survival
  • Development and Being Heard.

As part of this, we are also encouraging young people to engage with the Make your Mark campaign which is an opportunity for 11-18-year olds across the UK to have their say and begin their democratic journey by voting on the policies they want to introduce or change.


Unicef OutRight Campaign

Every year OutRight empowers children and young people to realise their own rights and speak out.

We are also linking with the Unicef OutRight campaign which, this year, is all about climate change and children’s rights.

They have some great resources available to help young people learn about children’s rights and ensure their voices are heard by decision-makers. The campaign is open to all schools, youth clubs and youth organisations and there is help on-hand for any questions you may have.
