Minister of State Baroness Williams of Trafford launched the theme for 2016 – ‘21: Coming of age – time to act’ – on Monday, 11 January 2016, at the House of Lords, in London. She was joined by Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, Lord Wallace of Tankerness, Angus Robertson MP and Yasmin Quereshi MP to launch the theme.
The charity aims to engage with Britain’s youth and two young people also spoke at the event. Abdul Farooq is one of five people born in 1995 – the year of the genocide – who took part in the BBC One documentary ‘A Deadly Warning: Srebrenica Revisited’. Amra Mujkanović, also 21, is a Scottish Bosnian who recently helped Remembering Srebrenica launch its Scotland education pack for schools.
