Democracy and human rights in school

In 2013, the Council of Europe organized a comic design contest for K-12 and high-school students. The topic was “Democracy and Human Rights in Schools”. After a long selection process, 10 designs were chosen as sources of inspiration for our five animated movies.

The scripts were worked out in close collaboration with the staff of the Council of Europe. We sought a balance between entertainment, humour and the values children had chosen to emphasize in their comics, which include diversity, participation, human dignity and democratic practice in schools.

As many as 16 animated characters appear in the movies. Some of them were created ad hoc for this project, but most of them were taken from our animated series about the Charter for all.

To get the message across smoothly and make it universally comprehensible, we used no voiceover and kept written text to a minimum. The soundtrack was composed specifically for this project by Juan García Escudero and the videos are available in French and in English.


Direction and production: Pampaneo
Script, 2d animation, graphics and characters design: Pedro Meca
Characters design: Kelly Abanto
Sound production and music: Juan García Escudero
A special thanks goes out to Carmen Alcántara for the great support of this project!
