About Changemaker Challenge

Changemaker Challenge is a 10-step course focusing on Child Rights and how to become a Child Rights Ambassador and changemaker in your own life and community. It covers topics ranging from girls’ equal rights to climate change and protection against violence.

Who is it for?

  • Children and young people are the main target group for this course. Children can take the course to become Child Rights Ambassadors, and learn about children's rights, democracy, and sustainable development.
  • Youth leaders, teachers and activists can also use this course. They can first want learn themselves and then become trainers for others. Then they can use the course as basis for educating and empowering children, for example, in classrooms, study circles, or Child Rights Clubs.

How does it work?

The Changemaker Challenge course has ten steps, each covering a different aspect of child rights. Every step begins with a story about a child whose rights have been violated. Participants are encouraged to relate these stories to their own lives, learn relevant facts, and brainstorm ideas for creating change. Each step concludes with a quiz before you move on to the next step. While we recommend following the steps in sequence, it's not a requirement.

Who is behind it?

The Changemaker Challenge was made possible with financial support from the Swedish Institute, the Swedish Postcode Lottery, Kronprinsessan Margaretas Minnesfond and Sparbanksstiftelsen Rekarne.
