DESIGNING for CHILDREN’S RIGHTS

D4CR Association –  Integrating children’s rights & ethics into the design process

WHO WE ARE

Designing for Children’s Rights is a global non-profit association, that is supporting the Designing for Children design guide that integrates children’s rights in the design and development of products and services around the world.

WHAT WE DO

We work to create awareness about the importance of keeping children’s rights in mind when building products and services. Apps, content, services and physical products are all under this umbrella. We work to develop the design guide, which instead of pointing out what is wrong, guides how to do things right.

The design guide is targeted for designers and business decision makers, and assists in implementing appropriate tools, methods and framework in order to have a final product that helps create a better world for our children and our common future.

The design guide is based on the 10 key principles that cover the most relevant children’s rights in the context. The children’s rights in the principles are guided by the Convention of the Rights of the Child, and UNICEF has supported the work in putting the principles together.
