Between 14 and 18 of May 2012, UNICEF Romania organized the OneMinuteJr. workshop for children on the theme "Why Poverty?”. For a week, 12 children aged 11 to 15 years have learned how to film and direct one minute movies illustrating what poverty means for them.
Children present at the workshop came from different environments and had different experiences in consequence their movies dealt with actual problems of the Romanian society.
The children also enjoyed the visit of UNICEF Regional Director Mrs. Marie-Pierre Poirier who listened to their stories and impressions of the workshop.
The short movies will enter into a competition in November 2012 that will take place in Amsterdam.
