Discover children's rights!
To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the 60th Anniversary of the Council of Europe, the Council of Europe has developed some exciting new materials that will enable children to discover their rights in an understandable and enjoyable way. The materials are designed to be used in awareness raising activities in the school and any other places visited by children and/or parents (health centres, social services, sports and cultural centres, etc).
A brochure and two posters to discover and always remember children's rights
Our three page illustrated brochure 'I have rights' presents children's rights in child-friendly language creating three, easy to understand, clusters of rights. It outlines the relationship between the child and her/his state, along with the role of international organisations in protecting the rights of the child. Finally it explains the options available to children if their rights are not respected.
Our A1 poster contains a good summary of children's rights, whereas the A2 poster presents children's rights in a few bullet points. They can be used in places such as schools, social and cultural centres, courts, residential institutions, etc to remind children and adults of the rights of the child.
The passport to your rights
The "passport to your rights" is an important passport, and it was created in 2010 for all children. It allows children enter in the world of their rights in a playful manner, explaining their basic rights, as well as the relationship with the states, or the role of international organisations. It should be their first passport in life.
Several languages versions of the passport are currently being developped
A call for partnerships
In order to make these materials available to the greatest number of children possible, the Council of Europe is calling for partnerships with interested institutions and authorities. We are in particular favouring partnerships with national and local authorities.
The French city of Strasbourg was the first city to partner us in this manner, disseminating brochures to over 25.000 children, placing posters and organising awareness raising events within the framework of the 20th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
These materials are currently available in more than 20 languages.
If you are interested in a partnership for the printing and dissemination of the material, please contact the Programme "Building a Europe for and with Children".
