Why positive representation is important for young people
Published on 22 Jun 2022
In partnership with The Bingham Centre, we’ve made a brand new series of videos that explores the importance of public legal education for young people, particularly as it relates to the Rule of Law.
A 2018 report of the UK House of Lords said that young people learning about their rights is “in a parlous state.” Many believe that public legal education in schools is lacking, and leaves many young people unaware of the extent of their rights. If more young people can be equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to be active citizens, they can feel more empowered to do so. We, along with The Bingham Centre, hope these videos can be a stepping off point for many young people to further their public legal education and learn more about their rights.
In this video, we look at why positive representation is important for young people, when it comes to their interest in public legal education.
EachOther is a UK-focused charity that uses independent journalism, story-telling and film-making to put the human into human rights. The digital content we produce is grounded in the lived experience of ordinary people affected by human rights issues. We involve them in the process of developing their stories, rather than talking for or over them. Theirs are the voices we platform and amplify to our lay audience of over a million viewers each year. In this way, we hope to grow public support for human rights here in the UK.
