In 2019, UNICEF teamed up with the European Commission to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child: the most ratified human rights treaty in the world. They set out to create an awareness campaign that would speak to the audience that this treaty matters to most: young children.

We decided to focus completely on Tik Tok and its international audience of 1 billion young users. We worked together with influencers and created engaging video content around 6 different themes: from child labour to domestic violence to the right to education and so on.
