First Minister signs up to iRights, 06/07/15 [S]

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has signed up the Scottish Government as an official supporter of the iRights coalition today.

The First Minister endorsed the project during a visit to a youth café at the Cupar YMCA-YWCA where she met young people ahead of the Cabinet meeting and public discussion in the town.

The iRights coalition recognises that the internet and digital technologies are a fundamental part of children and young people’s lives and believes that they people must be empowered to access the digital world creatively, knowledgeably and fearlessly.

Young Scot is the lead in Scotland for the UK-wide iRights coalition and has been awarded £76,000 by the Scottish Government to define and promote the rights of children and young people online and in digital technologies.
