Extra game information

The 'Children's Parliament' poster is the overview poster for the right to participation. The posters show a multitude of situations in the parliament building. Outside of the parliament, people are demonstrating. The text balloons show additional situations linked to the right of participation. The QR code on the panel links to an audio story that gives a good introduction to start the conversation on the right to participation with your target group.

The rights linked to participation are the following:

Art. 7 – Name and nationality | Art. 8 - Identity | Art. 12 – Respect for children’s view | Art. 13 – Sharing thoughts freely | Art. 14 – Freedom of thought and religion | Art. 15 – Setting up or joining groups | Art. 17 – Access to information | Art. 28 – Access to education | Art. 29 – Aims of education | Art. 30 – Minority culture, language and religion | Art. 31 – Rest, play, culture, arts | Art. 42 – Everyone must know children’s rights

All children's rights icons used on the posters are created by UNICEF for their child-friendly version of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.


Ask the children to make a drawing about the right to participation and what it means to them.
