UNICEF continued its CRC@18 series with a oneminutejr. workshop in the Philippines in September. In honor of the 18th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, workshops participants were asked to pick an article from the convention and visualize it in an artistic way.

The workshop, held in Manila, brought children from all over the Philippines. The kids were selected by the Probe Foundation, UNICEF and Plan International. The participants were all involved in the Kabatan News Network, a youth reporter program that has bureaus in most provinces of the Philippines and airs on a network in the country.

Having already had some camera experience, the participants were able to be extra creative and do their own special effects and animation. They developed fresh ideas that addressed child labour, neglect, disabilities and discrimination.

After much fanfare, the films were played in a final screening at the Regalia Suites Hotel. The participants had prepared an intricate post-screening presentation for the facilitators that involved skits, musical performances and dancing. The facilitators were invited to learn Filipino dance steps and to eat the much-talked-about balut (a Filipino delicacy: boiled egg with duck embryo inside).
