The FUNC project follows on from the Our Rights Our Story (OROS) report.
The aim of the project is to write a young person’s report to be submitted to the United Nations when the fifth Government submission for the UNCRC is presented in 2017.
The process involves training young people in the skills of teamwork, research, consultation, communication, presentation, literacy, numeracy and data analysis among others. A steering group of young people led the process and the Grand Council devised the research methods and content. They also analysed the data, made initial recommendations and presented these to the Grand Council for wider comments and recommendations.
