And Beyond

Many more of us can play a positive role in advocating for a better world for children. We therefore want to open up discussions around children’s rights for all audiences, presenting and unfolding bold ideas on issues which—whether we know it or not—affect children and young people.

And Beyond is a creative project by CRIN, which looks at the world through stories, humour, artwork and our vision for the future. With it, we encourage people to question, challenge, and think differently about the world we live in, and never—never—just settle for the status quo.
