We know that you have a pretty clear idea of what a happy world can look like for you and other kids and teens. With Action for Happy Kids, we want to reach as many children as possible, no matter where they are in the world. It is important to us that all kids get a chance to be heard and seen.

Therefore, we are counting on you that you are open-minded, tolerant, and respectful. "Action for Happy Kids" is your project and will only bring a change into this world if all we overcome boundaries together and start anew.

In Action for Happy Kids, you play the central role in deciding what world you want to live in. Many of you have to struggle with extreme conditions, and you have probably all heard some promises. And yes, the older generations are responsible for your future. But that does not mean that you do not have the opportunity to draw attention to yourself and what is important to you. On the contrary, this is an important first step.   But it is not enough. We are counting on you to really make a difference. Because you have the ideas and you will have the chance to learn from and with other kids around the world and to put your ideas into practice. And even more: we support you. It doesn't depend on your age when it comes to participating and when it comes to your social project. More important for us are your talents, experiences and your stories. Even the youngest among you know what makes you happy, what doesn't and why. In everything that we will do together, it is our task to support you and to offer you the safe environment that you need and do not restrict. You should know that you have us at your side, just waiting for you to get started. You can only make one mistake and that is not to start.

 

Action For Happy Kids

Viele von euch haben mit extremen Bedingungen zu kämpfen, und ihr habt sicher alle schon so einige Versprechungen gehört. Und ja, die älteren Generationen haben eure Zukunft zu verantworten. Das bedeutet aber nicht, dass ihr keine Möglichkeit habt, auf euch und das, was euch wichtig ist, aufmerksam zu machen. Im Gegenteil, dies ist ein erster wichtiger Schritt.   Der reicht aber noch nicht. Wir setzen darauf, dass ihr wirklich etwas bewegen könnt. Denn ihr habt die Ideen, und ihr werdet die Chance haben, von und mit anderen Kids auf der ganzen Welt zu lernen und eure Ideen umzusetzen. Und mehr noch: wir unterstützen euch. Es kommt nicht auf euer Alter an,  wenn es darum geht mitzumachen und wenn es um euer soziales Projekt geht. Wichtiger sind für uns eure Talente, Erfahrungen und eure Geschichten. Auch die Jüngsten unter euch, wissen was sie glücklich macht, und was nicht und warum. In allem, was wir gemeinsam tun werden, ist es unsere Aufgabe euch zu unterstützen und euch das sichere Umfeld zu bieten, das ihr braucht und dabei nicht einschränkt. Ihr sollt wissen, ihr habt uns an euer Seite, die nur darauf warten, dass ihr loslegt. Ihr könnt nur einen Fehler machen und der ist, nicht zu starten.

Mach mit beim Videowettbewerb #actionforhappykids. Das ist der erste Schritt. Begeistere andere Kids und Jugendliche auch teilzunehmen. Euch sind keine Grenzen gesetzt. Lasst uns wissen, wie eine Welt aussieht, in der Kinder und Jugendliche glücklich sind. Eure Botschaften werden der Ausgangspunkt für all das sein, was wir gemeinsam anstoßen. Wir wollen euch hierzu nichts weiter vorgeben. Das würde euch nur begrenzen und uns allen keinen Spaß machen. Überrascht uns. Wir sind bereit.

#Actionforhappykids challenge

Get involved and inspire other kids and teenagers to join in. This is the beginning. Let us first know and make us understand what a happy world for kids looks like.
Your messages will be the starting point for what we will initiate together. We don't want to predefine any road for you. That would limit you and not be fun for any of us. Its up to you to take the direction.
