Events: Have your say about the future of human rights in Scotland
Last year, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon set up an independent Advisory Group to develop a series of recommendations and actions around human rights in Scotland – and you can have your say at these events across the country.
Human rights are a vital part of a just and equal society. They give you a set of rights and freedoms regardless of where you are from, how old you are, what you believe, or how you choose to live your life.
How your human rights are affected by governments and other bodies is becoming increasingly important. The Advisory Group is making recommendations on how we can protect our existing rights and examine how Scotland can go further in demonstrating human rights leadership.
The Advisory Group want to hear your views and feedback on their developing recommendations and how they can be made as effective as possible in improving the lives of people and communities. We’re inviting you along to a discussion event so you can have your say:
All events will be held in the afternoon, with exact timings to be confirmed. We’ll also have an opportunity to share your views online soon.
We’ll also be having lots of discussion on Facebook and Twitter using #HumanRightsLeadership, You can follow the @HRLeadershipSco Twitter account, Like them on Facebook and visit the website www.humanrightsleadership.scot for more.
