All religions and faith community participants engage in celebration on the Day of Prayer and Action for Children, which falls on November 20. Religious leaders sign and circulate a joint statement to the media in which they seek to promote positive aspects of childhood and adolescence in Panama and ask for media, through their stories and reports, to promote social policies aimed at adequate protection of childhood and adolescence.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>As part of the strategy, mobilising in the schools is done through sensitisation workshops where children learn to know how to identify violence and how it affects their development, as well as present their ideas about ways to reduce violence and abuse in their environments. In parallel, through a social media strategy, the community raises its voice against violence, using Facebook, Twitter and web platforms developed by the institutions involved.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>In 2013, the theme for World Day of Prayer and Action for Children was "An adolescent without violence", a message disseminated throughout the month in many media contexts. Meetings between religious leaders, UNICEF, and the media sensitised journalists to use approaches that promote the rights of children.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Many religious leaders shared in their celebrations with their parishioners the messages related to the importance of protecting children and adolescents against violence. As part of the process, approximately 140 students from schools of all religions worked to identify forms of violence that affect them and to develop their leadership and communication skills.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The strategy had high visibility with the publication of a statement signed by all religious and social media leaders in an effort to create a network of more than 400 people per post related to the topic and more than 1,600 "likes" on Facebook. All activities that were promoted invited people to raise their voice for an "adolescence without violence" with the hashtag: #Diadelaoracion and #Endviolence.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>In 2014, there was once again a celebration of a Day for a Childhood and Adolescence without Violence, on which religious leaders, signed for the third year, a statement, published in various media, around promoting social policies aimed at the appropriate protection of childhood and adolescence. During the month of November about 300 students were linked through awareness workshops in their schools, including the Pan American Institute, Arab Academy for Columbus, College Rabin, and Badi School.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The entire population was invited to raise their voice through networks to stop violence, and a Sunday Mass was celebrated by the Archbishop of Panama with the presence of leaders of other religious communities, which was televised and transmitted from the Basilica Don Bosco where over 300 children and adolescents participated.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-6"> <div class="field-label">Development Issues:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Children, Youth, Rights</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-2"> <div class="field-label">Key Points:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p> <iframe width="420" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/KN6lzUTyaNY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-partner-text"> <div class="field-label">Partner Text:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>UNICEF, Red Global de Religiones a favor de la Niñez (GNRC).&nbsp;According to the 2013 annual report of UNICEF ​​Panama 2013, to celebrate the Day of Prayer, the organisation worked with the Ecumenical Committee of Panama and the leaders of the Catholic, Episcopal, Anglican religion, Islam, Jewish community Kohl Sherit, and the Baha'i Faith.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-contactinfo"> <div class="field-label">Contact Information:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/global/node/7433">Janibeth Miranda - UNICEF Panamá</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-link-other-nodes"> <div class="field-label">Related Summaries:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/global/content/por-una-ni%C3%B1ez-y-adolescencia-sin-violencia">Por una Niñez y Adolescencia sin Violencia</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-source-text"> <div class="field-label">Source:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/redirect.cgi?r=http://www.unicef.org/panama/spanish/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">UNICEF Panama website</a>, March 14 2015.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.comminit.com/global/content/childhood-and-adolescence-without-violence" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.comminit.com/global/content/childhood-and-adolescence-without-violence#comments Panama Experiences 10 to 14 years 15 to 19 years Academic Institutions Advocacy Children - Communicating with, for and about Community Engagement with Dialogue and Action Digital Children Community Participation Live Performance Reducing Violence Civil Society Community Groups Phone/Mobile Community Media Print Radio Adolescents and Violence Television News Media NGOs Religious Groups United Nations Rights Youth Featured UNICEF Adolescent Development Communicating with, for and about children Global Early Child Development Thu, 16 Apr 2015 19:26:45 +0000 jlevy 9354637 at http://www.comminit.com Monster Network http://www.comminit.com/global/content/monster-network <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.comminit.com/global/files/imagecache/thumbnail/monstruos_en_red_0.jpg" alt="" title="" width="100" height="65" class="imagecache imagecache-thumbnail imagecache-default imagecache-thumbnail_default"/> </div> </div> </div> <p>This is a multi-platform initiative that promotes the development of skills for safe and beneficial use of information and communication technology (ICT) amongst children between 3 and 7 years of age.

The training was designed to: provide tools to investigate educational practices using paedagogical reflection; analyse the impacts generated in classrooms and the surrounding areas ("territories"); and systematise the discussions of impact through audiovisual productions which could be shared across schools and in the public sphere. The documentation process required active participation of students, teachers, community workers, professionals, researchers, journalists, and parents; all engaged in a process of systematisation of educational experiences of civic transformation.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The project implementation was carried out in 14 districts of Bogotá, through two phases:</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><em>Phase 1:</em> Training (March-October 2014)&nbsp;</p> <p>To perform the audiovisual systematisation in every school classroom, workshops were divided into 12 modules of systematisation on the theme "Territory and Citizenship", and these were then presented based upon the methodology Reflection-Action-Participation (RAP), which led to dialogue on knowledge in the educational community.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The paedagogical process allowed the children and youth, with the support of lead teachers and parents, to participate in: the reflection of their experience, the recognition of the context in which it was developed, and discussion of how they are building citizenship from this practice of reflection and how it is impacting the transformation of their territory.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>As a cross-cutting principle of the training, the groups received training on the basics of audiovisual production, in order to, as described earlier, make videos about social practices that emerged through recording the student stories. As part of this process, a script for a film was built collectively.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><em>Phase 2:</em> Realisation (since October 2014)&nbsp;</p> <p>The second phase, also organised by UNIMINUTO, was the creation of documentaries proposed by the groups. Production of the first 24 audiovisual pieces was conducted between October and December 2014.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Once the documentary editing process is complete, these are made available for publication on television and through<a href="/redirect.cgi?r=https://www.facebook.com/EscuelasTransformandoTerritorios2014" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"> virtual media and social spaces</a> that allow for generating dialogues, debate, and exchange of experiences.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-6"> <div class="field-label">Development Issues:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Children, Youth, Conflict.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-2"> <div class="field-label">Key Points:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Schools Transforming Territories is part of the project "Education for Citizenship and Civic Coexistence (ECC)" from the SED that aims to educate creative citizens who question and build frameworks for civic coexistence.

These programmes would allow child, adolescence, and youth participation in making important decisions in their municipalities, and they would that seek resources of corporations for programmes, not only by investment in infrastructure. The Network has also driven implementation of the Code of Childhood and Adolescence governing Honduras since 1996 and the creation of the National Institute of Youth.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/nm3ljahmsrs" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-partner-text"> <div class="field-label">Partner Text:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF)</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-contactinfo"> <div class="field-label">Contact Information:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/global/content/cesar-armando-ayestas-red-de-comunicadores-infantiles-y-juveniles">Cesar Armando Ayestas - Red de Comunicadores Infantiles y Juveniles</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-link-other-nodes"> <div class="field-label">Related Summaries:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/global/content/red-de-comunicadores-infantiles-y-juveniles">Red de Comunicadores Infantiles y Juveniles</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-source-text"> <div class="field-label">Source:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Challenges Bulletin, No. 16 and the <a href="/redirect.cgi?r=http://redcomunicadoresdanli.jimdo.com/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Red de Comunicadores Infantiles y Juveniles website</a>, March 26 2015.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.comminit.com/global/content/communicators-network-children-and-youth" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.comminit.com/global/content/communicators-network-children-and-youth#comments Honduras Experiences Adolescent Civic Engagement Advocacy Children - Communicating with, for and about Digital Strengthening Capacities for Excellence in C4D Practice Children Community Participation Film and Video Entertainment Person-to-Person Community Groups Governance and Democracy Interpersonal Community Media Entertainment Orgs Television Enabling and Inclusive Environments for Adolescents Government Departments NGOs United Nations Rights Youth UNICEF Adolescent Development Communicating with, for and about children Global Thu, 26 Mar 2015 16:15:44 +0000 jlevy 9354288 at http://www.comminit.com A Review of Interventions Addressing Structural Drivers of Adolescents' Sexual and Reproductive Health Vulnerability in sub-Saharan Africa: Implications for Sexual Health Programming http://www.comminit.com/global/content/review-interventions-addressing-structural-drivers-adolescents-sexual-and-reproductive-h <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.comminit.com/global/files/imagecache/thumbnail/onelovefinaleval_0.jpg" alt="" title="A Review of Interventions Addressing Structural Drivers of Adolescents&#039;
