Programme “We are here too!”

For yet another year, the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation supported the implementation of the Network's programme “We are here too!”, which aims at promoting and disseminating children's rights among children, parents, teachers and the general public, through the creation of short stop-motion animation films and using LEGO bricks as a basic material. After the successful completion of the programme’s first stage, which focused on health and development issues, the second stage put the spotlight on Children’s Right to Education (equal access – equal opportunities), as defined in Article 28 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).

An online experiential workshop for teachers from all over Greece and abroad (train the trainers), and a series of seminars for children aged 9-12 were held in the framework of the programme. Participants, both children and adults, gained doctrinal-introductory knowledge about the Convention on the Rights of the Child, as well as practical skills in creative writing and audiovisual media. The relevant creative encounters resulted in the production of a short stop-motion animation film entitled “A school to fit us all!”, the script of which was written by the children who participated in the workshops. The film is openly accessible on the Network's website and has been presented in schools, cinemas, festivals and similar institutions abroad.

  • The film has reached more than 2,150 views on the Network's YouTube channel.
