Article of the Week Article 17 The Right To Information
This week the Article of the Week is introduced by Eddie, from the Unicef Youth Advisory Board.
During the pandemic the Unicef Youth Advisory Board have developed information to help young people get the facts about Coronavirus. Article 17 states that every child has the right to reliable information from a variety of sources and governments should provide information that children can understand.
It is always useful for young people to consider the reliability and accuracy of information they are given by the media, particularly in light of issues such as ‘fake news’ and misinformation around important topics like the Coronavirus.
