Child Protection Index

Giant advocacy instrument developed across 9 countries with the involvement of 72 experts

I have been involved in the creation of the Child Protection Index - an advocacy giant cross-border instrument designed to measure the government decisions to protect vulnerable children. The tool was created jointly by World Vision and ChildPact and developed across 9 countries with the involvement of 72 experts.

My role has included overseeing high level public events (including an official launch in Brussels with over 10.000 on line viewers); contacts with the media, developing and curating joint communication materials, press-releases, op-eds, social media content, campaign animations and videos like the one above.
