Scotland’s Commissioner for Children and Young People
The Golden Road
"We were consistently impressed. We enjoyed working with people who looked at our film from all viewpoints: from the top of a mountain and close up with a magnifying glass. Creativity and attention to detail is a fabulous combination."
Scotland’s Commissioner for Children and Young People wanted a film to explain how their 7 Golden Rules for Participation can work in a special school where the children are non-verbal. The message is that all children and young people have the right to participate in decisions that affect their lives
WHAT WE DID
We followed a few pupils and one teacher to bring to life the way the Golden Rules work in practice. "The young people were active participants in the film; they were not its subjects" commented SCCYP. "We felt that media co-op didn’t just understand this; they believed it. The team treated everyone involved in the project with dignity, respect and equality."
