1989

By | Operations | 2 Comments

What’s so important about 1989?
Not only was Taylor Swift born but the Convention on the Rights of the Child was approved.

Operation 4 looks at what was written then, how things have changed in the last 26 years and what it means for young people’s rights. This Operation includes three missions which explore the Convention in more detail and include some fun research.

Mission 1: Impact – asks which rights you believe are impacted by digital media.
Mission 2: 26 years – is about facts and fashion relevant to the year 1989.
Mission 3: Evolve – asks what you think the Convention should look like today.

Do you think they got everything right in 1989?

Special Op!

By | Operations | 2 Comments

Our first Special Operation is now live.

Special Ops are a bit different in that they only have one Mission, and this one challenges your competitive side!
The Convention on the Rights of the Child has important information but it’s not very exciting to look at. In this Special Op we ask you to get creative and design a poster on your rights.

What happens to the winning design?

The winning poster will feature on the RErights website and the Voices of Youth website. We will also print your poster and send it to you and to some very important decision-makers and experts on children’s rights like the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child.

So get your creativity flowing and share your design with the world!

Plugged in!

It is important for us to understand how and why you use technology in your everyday life to get a better picture of the differences and similarities within our team of Agents around the world. Operation 3: Online – includes four missions about the ways you use digital technology.

Mission 1: Tech – asks what devices you have access to.
Mission 2: DigiUse – asks you to get creative in telling us how you use technology.
Mission 3: Speed – asks you to test your internet speed using an online test.
Mission 4: Obstacle Course – asks what obstacles you have to overcome to connect online.

Everyone uses technology differently and for different reasons.
How do you go online?
