New Constitution in Chile

18 workshops were implemented in the pilot phase

The second week of October saw the end of the pilot phase of the new simulation game of the #Presentes project, called "Act: exercise your rights", a space that provides tools to children and adolescents so that they can identify their human rights and apply them in a concrete way to everyday problems through a playful and participatory methodology.

In these pilots, which began to be implemented in August 2022, 271 children and adolescents from schools, residences, child and adolescent care offices and advisory councils from 13 municipalities in the country participated, including southern areas such as Puerto Natales and Punta Arenas. 

During the implementation of these pilots, brief interviews were conducted regarding the activity, among them, an adolescent from Villa Jorge Yarur Residence pointed out that "I liked the workshop, it is good to learn about these things through games. Hopefully we will repeat it."
For her part, Marcia Valdés Cautivo, Director of one of the centers commented "thank you very much for the dedication and commitment with which you carried out this workshop, considering, in addition, that it is a topic that is often not addressed, however, it is very important in the formation of our teenagers". 

In the coming days the Actúa game will be presented on our website and on the social networks of CRISP, Defensoría de la Niñez, Observa Ciudadanía and Universidad Metropolitana de la Educación where its methodology, objectives, scenarios and much more will be detailed. 

Actúa aims to reach the participation of 1,500 children and adolescents, covering, along with the first simulation game of the project, all regions of the country.
