This activity enables children and adults to make maps of their community and school that identify the conditions that support children’s rights in specific places. The maps can be shared with others to show which places are assets for children and youth, and which places pose risks. The maps can also be shared in a community or school improvement plan to show opinions about how to redesign places to better support children, youth and their families. Mapping is also useful to identify a representative sample of children, youth and adults from the community to participate in the assessment and planning process.
- What places are supportive of children, youth and parents in the community and school?
- What places pose risks to children and youth in the community and school?
- How can places in the community and school be improved to support children, youth and their families?
