|Monday 9 August 1999|
The Christchurch City Councils Community Services Committee today congratulated two Christchurch Students for their participation at a recent youth forum in Dunedin.
Andy Sales and Vanessa Eggers were accompanied by Councils Youth Advocate Robin Moore at "Childrens Rights: International and National Perspectives", a forum organised by the University of Otago Childrens Issues Centre.
The pair joined a group of ten young people from Dunedin to answer questions from the floor. They fielded questions about youth consultation processes from an audience that included delegates from all over the world.
According to City Council Youth Advocate Robin Moore, the paper was well received and sparked many questions from the audience.
