MYAN Submission to the Australia Human Rights Commission – ‘Free and Equal’

As part of The Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) human rights conference ‘Free and Equal’, MYAN was provided an opportunity to meet with Dr. Michelle Bachelet, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights: a significant opportunity for Dr. Bachelet to hear directly from young people in MYAN’s networks about key human rights issues facing them in Australia today. These included: the importance of targeted approaches in education to best ensure that young people access, remain engage in and successfully navigate secondary education and education, training and employment pathways, barriers to meaningful employment, youth participation and the importance of investing in youth leadership, settlement and intergenerational dynamics, and the impact of racism and discrimination, including in the youth justice area.
