Children and Young People’s Panel on Europe

by:

What did we do

Children in Scotland worked in partnership with Together (the Scottish Alliance for Children’s Rights) to support the engagement of children and young people in decision making about Britain’s exit from the EU.
We supported a group of 19 children and young people aged 8 – 19 to share their views and come up with recommendations for what they wanted to happen as the UK left the EU.
