European Youth Forum - Info Tool on "PROMOTING YOUTH RIGHTS"
European Youth Forum (YFJ) created an info tool called "PROMOTING YOUTH RIGHTS - How to harness the power of human rights instruments".
Getting to know the Forum better, it is important to always observe its' priorities and compences. When doing so we get to see that Youth Rights are high in the Agenda. Aiming in developing Members' and young peoples' capacities, YFJ shared an info tool which as it described,
"IT PROVIDES AN INTRODUCTION TO YOUNG PEOPLE’S RIGHTS, FOCUSING ON THE PROCESSES AND MECHANISMS AVAILABLE TO HIGHLIGHT VIOLATIONS OF RIGHTS OR SHORTCOMINGS IN THE ACCESS TO RIGHTS."
In detail, it gives an introduction to Human Rights, the key connection to young people and our work, while going through various institutions and organizations that are related to the protection and the promotion of Human rights. Doing so, it shares how the platform proceeds to monitoring, reporting and empowering while sharing relevant information and resources.
Going through this human rights' path that the info tool has led the participant, it closes with an interesting quiz in ordedr to "test your understanding" As stated:
"This online tool is not an exhaustive resource on youth rights or human rights. However, we hope it has equipped you with the knowledge and tools to advance youth rights in your own context, increasing your understanding of the mechanisms and processes that are available, as well as how to begin to make use of them."
