Intergenerational peace (GENPEACE)

Amplifying youth voices and children’s civic participation through social media and the arts.

In GENPEACE, the project is working through Yayasan Save the Children Indonesia and cultural artists from Bandung province, and through existing government sponsored children’s forums.

The aim is to go beyond sharing and presenting children’s views, and instead to explore creating a two-way or dialogic communication between participating children and targeted policy makers.

Through arts-based participatory methods, including musical drama with the traditional Bamboo Angklung instrument, digital videos involving song, dance, poetry recitation, and photo narrative exhibits, GENPEACE will create new structures for intergenerational communication.

This will be achieved by training and working with 30 children and youth facilitators from children’s forums (formal and informal in Bandung district), to report on children’s rights issues at the Musrenbang, through artand digital based advocacy.

A bespoke training manual for the children’s forums and strategies to secure accountability from adult decision makers will be created.
