It’s a one off session that seeks to explore UNICEF’s findings on child wellbeing in rich countries, and believe it or not, the UK falls into that category. (Though you wouldn’t know it the way our government manages our wealth).
The session starts at 9.30am today and you can catch it live on Parliament TV.
Twitter users can get involved too -simply respond to what you hear using the hash tag #EducomWellbeing.
Planned speakers include:
- Dragan Nastic, Domestic Policy and Research Officer, UNICEF-UK
- Peter Grigg, Director of Campaigns, Policy and Research, The Children’s Society
- Rt Hon David Laws MP, Minister of State for Schools, Department for Education
The page on the website doesn’t make the agenda for the discussion terribly clear save for the fact that there will be a debate on Free schools and Academies.
Do get involved if you can. We know we will be raising our voice to make it very clear that we think our government is completely out of touch when it comes to children and their needs. Catch us on Twitter at @SobukiRa.
