The Campaign Planner for Children is a new, child-centred approach to campaign planning, in which children have the tools, resources and confidence to develop and implement their own effective campaigns in safe and meaningful ways.
Many children want to exercise their right to speak out, influence change and contribute positively to the development of their societies. Children know what works for them and often provide creative solutions to difficult circumstances. We need their engagement to hold decision-makers to account and their help to find sustainable solutions to realise children’s rights across contexts, including in conflict and other humanitarian situations.
The Campaign Planner is designed to be run as a workshop, either in-person or virtually, facilitated by Save the Children staff and partners. It is suitable for all children with a recommended minimum age of 12, whether complete beginners or experienced child campaigners and in all contexts. Children will learn about their rights and campaigning, then develop their own campaign plan based on topics they are most passionate about.
The Campaign Planner is made up of five modules with risk awareness and mitigation exercises built in to the tools.
