Publisher: Edition Lammerhuber Okt 2014

Publication Date: 2014

Binding: Buch

Book Condition: Neu

Description:

Neuware - 2014 wird die UN-Kinderrechtskonvention 25 Jahre alt. 25 Jahre Kinderrechte ist der Anlass, das Thema vehement in die Mitte der Gesellschaft zu tragen. UNICEF Deutschland und GEO - unterstützt von den besten Fotografen der Welt und der Edition Lammerhuber - tun dies in einem gemeinsamen Pro-bono-Projekt. Eine Auswahl besonders berührender Fotografien aus dem Wettbewerb 'UNICEF-Foto des Jahres' formulieren in 40 Bildreportagen aus 15 Jahren ein aufrüttelndes Plädoyer, die Rechte der Kinder zu achten und jedem Mädchen und jedem Jungen auf der Welt eine Kindheit in Würde zu garantieren. Herausgeber sind Jürgen Heraeus, der Vorsitzende des deutschen Komitees für UNICEF und Peter-Matthias Gaede, der langjährige Chefredakteur von GEO. 'WE THE CHILDREN' nutzt die Kraft des Buches, um auf das Leid und die Nöte, aber auch auf die Wünsche und Träume der Kinder von heute aufmerksam zu machen - ein Appell auch nach New York zur UN-Generalversammlung im September 2015. Hier wird über eine neue Entwicklungsagenda nach 2015 verhandelt und damit auch über die Zukunft von Milliarden von Kindern. 'WE THE CHILDREN' ist ein Buch voll Hoffnung auf eine kindgerechte Welt. 296 pp. Englisch, Deutsch. Bookseller Inventory # 9783901753749

Synopsis:

  • A touching, evocative, cautionary, informative book that still manages to spread hope
  • This book presents a selection of particularly evocative photographs from the UNICEF Photo of the Year competition of the last 15 years and is a fervent appeal to respect the rights of the child across the world and to ensure a childhood in dignity for all
  • This volume is the result of a cooperation with UNICEF, GEO and the best photographers in the world
  • The pictures selected for this volume remind us of the necessity for the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child as well as highlighting some brave efforts in support of children
  • All proceeds from the sale of this book go to support UNICEF
The 25th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is a good reason to put the topic emphatically into the public focus. UNICEF Germany and GEO with the support of the world's best photographers and Edition Lammerhuber do exactly that in this joint pro-bono project. In 40 photographic reports from 15 years, a selection of particularly striking pictures from the UNICEF Photo of the Year competition forms a fervent appeal to respect the rights of the child and to guarantee every girl and boy in the world a childhood in dignity. The volume is edited by Jürgen Heraeus, the Chairman of the German Committee of UNICEF, and Peter-Matthias Gaede, long-serving Editor-in-Chief of GEO. We the Children draws attention to the suffering and hardships, but also to the wishes and dreams of today's children. We the Children is a book full of hope for a child-oriented world. Text in English and German.
