Message to an individual:

Subject: Invitation to participate in UN consultation with young people on environment

Dear xxx,

From 31 March – 30 June 2022, the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child is inviting young people from around the world to complete a questionnaire that will help shape the content of the General Comment No. 26 – official UN guidance on what governments must do to uphold children’s rights and protect our planet.

I believe you are a great person to participate in the consultation!

The questionnaire simply asks you to share your views and experiences on your rights, the environment and climate change. You can complete it here.

I also encourage you to spread the questionnaire far and wide through your networks and online. You can use this outreach message and social media pack.

Warm regards,

xxxx
