The young people who attended were invited to share their opinions on the priorities identified in the strategy and highlight key issues or challenges for young people and actions that need to be taken to address these. The Northern Ireland Children’s Commissioner, Koulla Yiasouma, was in attendance along with representatives from the Department of Education.
