Workshops and Seminars
ACYA holds workshops and seminars provide the opportunity to discuss issues in depth. These are attended by those with experience and expertise in working with and providing services for children and young people. Material from these workshops and seminars often supports statements and recommendations made in ACYA’s shadow report to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child.
Between 2014 and 2016, ACYA will hold a number of consultation and discussion workshops, and seminars on the rights of children and young people in Aotearoa New Zealand. These will be used to inform the 5th periodic shadow report.
This was held on 16 September to discuss the Education draft paper - click to download. Important information emerging from the discussions will be posted on the website as soon as it becomes available.

We held two Youth Justice seminars on 7 August and 4 September. All available places in the seminars were taken. Important information emerged from the discussions and the Youth Justice Working Paper is being revised accordingly.
Kids Missing Out
During 2014 ACYA and UNICEF New Zealand held seminars on the key messages from the Kids Missing Out report.
