Youth representatives (8-17 years old) came to the Palais Des Nations -
Geneva to Discuss Topics of Important for Children's Human Rights
"The Child Rights Youth Summit was an AMAZING and special
"One special thing about this meeting is that it is run by children for
children. During this meeting, all of the delegates got to express
themselves freely. Children from many different countries attended this
meeting; as a result, there were many different perspectives about the
topics we discussed. This meeting was different than I expected;
specifically, we all got to speak to one another and do activities
together. I had a great time at the youth summit and wish I could
have this opportunity again. I would hope to learn EVEN MORE about my
rights and what is happening to other children around the world. "
