How many of you love to liven up an online discussion and use stickers to better express an emotion or idea?
Viber calling and messaging app, with over a billion users worldwide, has created a new sticker package to promote the U-Report platform. The Romanian version of stickers developed specifically for Moldovan U-Report was launched at the end of January 2020 and has already proved to be a success – in just a couple of days more than a 1,000 people joined the U-Report platform and now can express themselves on the problems and the subjects which concern them.
The stickers, featuring two animals – a lion and a mouse - and containing inspirational messages - „Speak your mind”, „Be kind”, „Spread Love” – were developed in close consultations with young U-Reporters.
"At the moment, we are announcing the official launch of the U-Report sticker package in Moldova! We hope that this initiative will help the development of the U-Report community and will provide another way for young people to make their voices heard in a fun and colorful way, ”says, Iuliana Losetchi, U-Report Moldova coordinator.
Today, more than 8 million U-Reporters around the world, in sixty countries, are mobilized thanks to this innovative tool allowing young people anonymously respond to the surveys and participate in one-on-one consultations with professionals on the topics of interest. In Moldova, UNICEF launched the U-Report tool in 2017 to encourage young people to strengthen their communities and currently it has more than 15,000 users from all over the country.
