Animate it! Training Manual - A reference guide for trainers and children in using animation to promote child rights

A Save the Children Sweden (SCS) reference guide for trainers and children in using animation to promote child rights. Animate-it is a method used by SCS to allow children to design and produce animated films to discuss their concerns, report on their situation and educate other children and adults about issues important to their lives. It is based on making the rights of the child heard and is aimed at providing children with a space to discuss and advocate for their rights. The children retell their own stories through animation, using their imagination to express their dreams and hopes. They are fully responsible for making all parts of the film: they write the story, draw and colour the characters in the film and give voices to the characters they create. This manual is designed primarily for people who work with children, children themselves and trainers who will coach others on Animate It!
