#MakingChildrenSafer, join the campaign!

Published August 11, 2016

The Igarapé Institute and several partners are launching a campaign called #MakingChildrenSafer (#SegurançaAssuntodeCriança) to raise awareness about the ways in which children are affected by violence. They want to give voice to the ways young people feel insecure, especially in Brazil. The campaign draws on findings and insights from the Child Security Index (CSI), a mobile app that surveys the experiences of adolescents and children.

Undertaken between August and September 2016, the #MakingChildrenSafer campaign has three objectives. First, they want to show the scale and dimensions of insecurity for young people. Second they want to underline the different ways boys and girls experience insecurity in the home, school and other public spaces. Third, they want to highlight the ways technology can help make young people feel safer.

The Child Security Index and #MakingChildrenSafer campaign is supported by the Bernard van Leer Foundation. For more information about the campaign watch the below video or visit the Igarapé Institute website.
