Shaking the Movers events are forums on child rights, they are for youth by youth. In 2016, the New Brunswick Child and Youth Advocate's Office and the Multicultural Association of Fredericton hosted the first Shaking the Movers event in eastern Canada. It's success has resulted in a second and third event. This year's Shaking the Movers theme will focus on the right to education; focusing on how children’s rights are respected at school, most specifically in middle and high schools.
Young people identify a theme and together they plan activities that encourages discussion around the chosen theme, all is based on the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
This is the perfect opportunity for children and youth to learn about their rights and make a meaningful contribution to their community and share their opinions with academics, policy makers and decision makers.
The theme of this conference will be the Right to education focusing on how children’s rights are respected at school, most specifically in middle and high schools.
