:D :) :| :( How do you feel about participation & rights right now?
Bill Badham got everyone to their feet at the start of the CROA conference - asking participants to move around the room and vote with their feet to answer four key questions. Participants could stand by one of four faces:
:D The delighted face - We're doing well on this issue.
:) The happy face - We're doing OK;
:| The unhappy face - We're not doing so well on this
:( The very unhappy face - We're not doing well on this at all.
The graph shows how participants here at the conference felt.
How do you feel about our four statements? You could copy them into a comment below and add your own 'face' to the end of each statement along with some comments if you like to share where you think we are on children and young peoples human rights and participation right now.
The four questions
1) Children and young peoples human rights have made significant advances in the last 13 years
2) The participation of children and young people has made a big impact on organisations and how services are delivered
3) The participation of children and young people has made a significant difference to their lived lives
4) I am positive about the next decade for advancing children and young people's human rights
