COP Online Safety Activity Book “Work with Sango” Now Available in Finnish
Save the Children Finland’s newest contribution to children’s online safety material is the Finnish version of the “Work with Sango” activity book.
Originally published by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) for its Child Online Protection (COP) efforts, the activity book offers children scenarios and questions about rights and safety online. The book can be utilised by parents and guardians, but also by teachers – or anyone who works with children. A handy teacher’s manual is also available with instructions on how to use the activity book as well as the correct answers to each question in it.
In the translated version, the protagonist Sanni (Sango) leads the children first to learn about their rights in general. Then the Convention on the Rights of the Child is introduced in an easy and compact way in the Finnish language. All the original exercises and scenarios have been meticulously translated and adapted to the Finnish culture and media environment.
Finnish is spoken globally by around five million people, most of them in Finland. Translating the COP Online safety activity book into Finnish was a joint effort in Save the Children Finland by the Digital Wellbeing & Children’s Rights and the Child Protection & Finnish Hotline teams. The teacher's manual was translated by the Digital Safety & Wellbeing team. The manual offers complete lesson templates as well as tips and resources so that the teachers can utilize the activity book in the most useful way.
