17 children from the industrial ruhr area in germany participated in a oneminutesjr workshop on child poverty in bochum (germany) april 19-23.

in the five-day workshop, the youngsters (age average 14) produced 17 oneminutejr videos about the way they see poverty. the workshop is supported by the german national committee for unicef and the ngo deutscher kinderschutzbund. all films will be shown at a national conference on child poverty in berlin. several nationwide tv channels also will produce feature stories about the workshop and its participants.

the german international football player christoph metzelder visited the workshop and said: "it's amazing to see how well the kids can shape their ideas, how deep their thoughts are. poverty is not only an issue in developing countries, it's also an issue here around us in germany."
