At the Council meeting on Wednesday, a motion was passed recognising the importance of young people’s rights and endorsing the Scottish Youth Parliament’s “Right here Right now” campaign.
A declaration to this effect was supported by the leaders of the political groups including Rutherglen South Liberal Democrat Councillor Robert Brown.
Robert Brown said:
“The Scottish Youth Parliament has done a tremendous job in empowering young people to have an input into National and community affairs. It is important that the council takes every opportunity to involve young people in decisions which affect them. This is what today’s declaration was all about.”
