Abstract [en]

Ever since 1919 has “Rädda Barnen” aka, “Save the Children” fought for the rights of the child. The UN convention tackles many important fights today concerning social sustainability which goals are pointing towards the improvement of children’s life conditions. Today we live in an adults world with an adults mind. How are we supposed to change this world to a world fit for children and youth if we do not invite them into the decisions and change-makings? Are we starting to understand the importance of child participation and are we finally inviting them to start shape their world together with the help of adults?

 

This thesis contributes to a discussion around the work of Save the Children and the practice of co-designing with children by addressing article 12 in the UN convention; “ Every child’s right to hold and express their views”. It supports a complex activity with workshops and thoughtful discussions in how to change for a world fit for children and where research towards an understanding of co-design practice with children has played part.

 

The framework in this study presents a practical solution and an initial structure of co-design with children with a low-tech prototyping, all as a prop for discussion amongst parents and adults in the position of decision-making.
