Youth Forum On International Human Rights Day Bermuda Dec 2019

Governor Rankin said, “International Human Rights Day reminds us of the importance of promoting and protecting the fundamental human rights that all should be able to enjoy.

“This year marks the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and this was a useful opportunity to hear and learn from young people in Bermuda, gaining their perspective on what rights mean for them now and for the future.

“The participants spoke with real passion and all those present were, I believe, were inspired by what they heard.”
