Pequeñ@s Ciudadan@s is an initiative from Nuevo León, México, to the world. Because boys and girls are full of magic and imagination, because they propose creative solutions, because they are interested in nature, sports, and making friends. Because boys and girls are going to change our world, by exercising their rights and living as true citizens.
Pequeñ@s Ciudadan@s is an educative platform that promotes and diffuses Culture of Lawfulness, Child Rights, and infant citizen participation in boys and girls.
This 2018 summer we are proud to announce the launching of the Pequeñ@s Ciudadan@s animated series in collaboration with Playkids, Latin America’s major platform in educative content for boys and girls. The series is based on the life of our Little Citizens: 5 boys and 4 girls between the age of 8 and 9. These Little Citizens narrate their daily adventures during recess, in the classroom and at home. Here is where the questions arise… what if…? Our Little Citizens must take decisions that encourage friendship, care for the environment, put a stop to violence, and promote inclusion between friends.
Throughout marvelous illustrations and fun situations, our Little Citizens show us about respecting rules, personal care and Child Rights. The series is available in three languages: English, Spanish, and Portuguese. They have a duration of approximately one minute, and each episode is based on one of the Child Rights established by the United Nations (UN): Right to Equality, Right to Health, Right to Education, Right to Rest and Play, Right to Freedom of Expression and Access to Information, Right to a Violence-Free Life, and Right to Special Care for Children with Disabilities.
The characters are designed in a way that allows the audience to identify with their personality, style, and characteristics:
- Diego: An athlete that sometimes gets mad when he loses
- Sofía: Organized and likes everyone to be friends
- Isabela: Studious and pays attention to details
- Santiago: An optimist that never gives up, uses crutches
- Anita: Friendly and takes care of her health
- Martín: Troublemaker, likes playing soccer
- Beto: Friendly, serviceable, and an athlete
- Nicolás: Active and participative
- Teresa: A good friend and an athlete
These videos can be found on Playkid’s online platform or on our Youtube channel, Pequeñ@s Ciudadan@s, beginning August 9th:
Our educative programs are imparted by professional volunteers and participative citizens who share their time, experience, and knowledge throughout their labor. During the 2017-2018 school cycle, the program benefited 13,040 boys and girls from 64 differente schools, and capacitated 70 parentes, with the help of 626 volunteers. When the program ends, the benefited boys, girls, and adults are conscious of their rights and responsibilities, and of how participation and dialogue generate peaceful and legal environments for everyone.
In Pequeñ@s Ciudadan@s we integrate methodologies of “learning by doing”, service learning, design thinking, and social entrepreneurship.
