Millions of young people around the world are meeting with parliamentarians and local decision-makers to issue a challenge: what will they do to ensure that all children in their communities and around the world are free, safe, and educated?
Young people in and out of school have been learning about the challenges faced by the most marginalised children in their own communities, and around the world. Actions are taking place on every continent - see what's been happening so far!

The Price of Free is the award-winning documentary telling the true story of how one man’s refusal to accept injustice built a global movement for child rights. The film will be available to watch for free until March 2019. Screenings can take place anywhere - in schools, on campuses, in parliamentary buildings, in a community centre, or in your own home. Everyone can register to take part here.
MEET WITH A DECISION-MAKER
Decision-makers around the world will be meeting with children and young people to discuss what actions they can take to ensure every child in their constituency and the world is free, safe, and educated. You can invite your local decision-makers to visit your school, college, or youth group, or use our resources to help you think of creative ways to start this crucial, ongoing conversation with your local elected officials. You can download a letter template to invite your decision-maker here.

FREEDOM, SAFETY, AND EDUCATION IN YOUR COMMUNITY: BRIDGES AND BARRIERS
Suitable across all age groups, the Bridges and Barriers activity has been designed with teachers and engages young people in an in-depth activity which asks you to imagine the journey needed to build a world where all children are free, safe, and educated, and to create a map to visualise this. The end result can be presented to a decision-maker or displayed in the community to raise awareness. The activity is available in all of the campaign action packs, which can be dowloaded here.
