YCT has become an official partner in the
Right Year for Children


The purpose of the year is to highlight the 20th anniversary of the UK ratifying the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. The Convention is a universally agreed set of non-negotiable standards and obligations. These basic standards—also called human rights—set minimum entitlements and freedoms that should be respected by governments. They are founded on respect for the dignity and worth of each individual, regardless of race, colour, gender, language, religion, opinions, origins, wealth, birth status or ability and therefore apply to every human being everywhere. With these rights comes the obligation on both governments and individuals not to infringe on the parallel rights of others.

YCT plans to promote the Right Year for Children at events throughout 2012 beginning with our first art collaboration project with Harlow College – more details on this will be posted shortly.
