The application in which young people contribute to solving problems
The mechanism behind U-Report is developed by UNICEF and helps young people and children to communicate about the things that really matter to them and the problems they face in order to help them with solutions. There are currently over 6 million U-reporters in 50 countries around the world, and the community is growing. U-Report is a consultation platform inspired by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, which aims to promote the rights of all children and adolescents to freely express their views on any issue concerning them (Article 12), freedom of expression (Article 13), the right to assemble and associate with others (Article 15) and the right to access information (Article 17).
U-Report is an intuitive mobile application, used both to find out what challenges children and adolescents face, as well as the problems of the communities in which they live, to find solutions to them but also to learn new things about society. And how they can make the world a better place for us all.
