Final Day for the Class of 2023

Youth Assembly Members questions officials from the Executive departments during Committee Meetings

Friday 30 June 2023 was a big and bittersweet day as our fabulous Youth Assembly ‘Class of 2023’ met in Parliament Buildings for the very last time.

Our Environment, Health, Rights and Equality and Education Committees presented their findings and make recommendations to Permanent Secretaries from the Departments of Heath, Education, Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs and the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission.

We discussed climate change, mental health, children’s and young people’s rights, relationships and sexuality education and why it’s important that young people have a voice in shaping policy and legislation on the issues that affect us. 

After Friday’s event we spoke to the Assembly Speaker, Alex Maskey, to find out what impressed him most about the Members of the Youth Assembly ⬇️
