Pieces of Us – What’s Next?

In July 2023, we held a children’s conference on the Concluding Observations. Hosted and facilitated by our YAP, over 100 children from across Ireland came together to consider the Committee’s recommendations and give their views on what needed to be prioritised to meet these recommendations. As has always been our experience, children were not short of ideas about how their lives could be improved. This report, Pieces of Us – What’s Next? presents their views on how some of the Committee’s Concluding Observations can be actioned by the State. These range from changes in teacher training, to more widely accessible leisure facilities and also community events to tackle discrimination. Some of their recommendations require considerable investment and systemic change; others need more minor adjustments to how we currently do things.
