VIDEO GAME ON CHILDREN RIGHTS

As part of its Inter-American Child and Family Information Program, the Inter-American Children's Institute has developed an interactive 2-D video game. The objective is to allow school-age children to learn about their rights while playing on the computer. The video game is called “Adam,” in honor of the Polish judge who, as Chairman of the UN Human Rights Committee’s Working Group, wrote and presented the first draft of the Convention on the Rights of the Child in l982. After almost a decade of negotiations, the Convention was approved and entered into force as an International Convention. The video game is available at all Focal Centers of the RIIN Network. It is not authorized for sale, although it may be copied. Due to its size and the quality of its graphics, the game will be distributed in CD-ROM format only.
