Ukraine 2016: Superheroes against mines: Edutainment approach to engaging children in mine safety

Ukraine is one of the world’s most mine contaminated countries in the world. There was a clear need for mine risk education among children but a hindering factor needed to be taken into consideration: children were reluctant to listen to adults about the necessary precaution measures to avoid mines. This case study will discuss how the country office developed their education entertainment program to address the need for mine risk education, using multiple platforms to reach children with lifesaving information.
