Human Rights Act - Children and young people


Children and young people

Guide for young people

The Commission also developed 'Let's talk about rights', a guide to help young people to participate in the Australian Government's National Human Rights Consultation.

The guide explains what the national consultation is all about, and how young people can make a submission about the human rights issues they feel most strongly about.

For most people it’s pretty hard to know which of our human rights are protected and which ones aren’t. This guide features examples and stories of real-life human rights issues in Australia and suggests some ways that human rights could be better protected.

The guide is available now:
