The campaign ‘Voice4action’ has been launched on the occasion of #WorldChildrensDay 2021. The main objective of this campaign is to give voice to the IMMERSE CYPAG (Children and Young People Advisory Group) and hear their opinions and recommendations about inclusion and integration in schools. By this, we want to make effective UNCRC Articles 12&13 which say that all children have the right to give their opinion in decisions that affect them.

The content of the campaign has been extracted from the work conducted by UCC with the CYPAG. The first one on the occasion of the Anti-Racism Committee’s Public Consultation on a new National Action Plan against Racism for Ireland. The second related to the capacity building session celebrated on November 6th 2021.

With this aim, a set of posts have been published via the social media channels of IMMERSE (Twitter, Instagram and Facebook) from Monday 15 to 20th November. In addition, a printable leaflet has been designed by INFODEF with Practical recommendations to enable and promote integration in schools developed by the CYPAG. This leaflet is available to download from the IMMERSE website (Media corner>Resources>Videos and awareness campaigns) in all partners’ languages:
