Why children’s rights are cool: Children’s rights are like superpowers – They give you the freedom to be yourself, learn, have fun, and grow up in a safe and fair world. We are here to show YOU just how amazing and important they are.

★ SUPER WORKSHOPS: We’ve got interactive workshops that will make learning fun! Dive into topics that will empower you to speak up when your rights are not met.
★ YOU LEAD THE TALK: We want to hear YOUR thoughts! There will be discussions led by our Youth Council members, who will listen, and truly care about your opinions and ideas.
★ THE BARN: There will be an abundance of organisations, with information and activities for everybody. Make sure to take part, as this is a once in a lifetime experience!
★ MEET NEW PALS: Connect with other young people and groups, who are passionate as you are about making Carmarthenshire a better place.
