Letters of presentation to the forces

Dear representatives of the prevention and emergency organisms:

We are writing to you to present the educational program "Connected by Security" and invite you to join us in the workshops we will hold in primary schools in your country, so that students know the work they do to ensure the safety of all.

At present, the use of communication tools is one of the privileged modes from which we interact. For this reason, the Organization of Ibero-American States for Education, Science and Culture (OEI) together with FORO 21 -Producer of Educational Content-, with the support of the Motorola Solutions Foundation, create the program "Connected by Security", with the aim of providing new generations with vital tools for citizen participation.

This educational campaign proposes an itinerant play workshop for children from 9 to 11 years old. In it, you will learn the value that state agencies have to protect our citizenship in situations of risk and emergency, and the importance that communication acquires in such situations. The objective is that children can transmit what they have learned to their families and thus reach many homes.

Through different ludic tools, it is sought that they understand that, as small citizens, they can observe situations of risk and alert in time, communicating in an appropriate way with the corresponding organisms. You just have to be vigilant, know who to turn to and make sure that our communication works.

The Program focuses on what concerns the prevention of cases of a public nature in which human life is at stake or a right is violated. To this end, health agents, firefighters and police officers, among others, are invited to participate in the workshops and collaborate with teachers in teaching about the different areas and organizations of civil protection, emergency and security. The idea is that children can have the honor of knowing personally those who protect them in those situations and you can tell them about your valuable work.

Important data
Differences between the different organisms and their functions.
Different situations of risk or emergency (natural catastrophes, fires, cases of violence, violated rights, traffic accidents, discrimination, mistreatment, robbery, kidnapping, collisions, accidents in public roads, among others).

We would love that you can participate and join the project "Connected by Security", to collaborate in our commitment to the education of future generations.

We wait for you!

Messages from children to the forces that already participated in the workshops

Thank you for committing to our safety, it served me a lot and they are like our heroes
Today we learned a lot, when I grow up I want to be a firefighter.
I liked the part that the firefighter said he does not enter only, he joined with a partner and that made me happy because always a friend accompanies him.
Thank you for coming, I really enjoyed playing with you and I wanted to thank you. I also learned a little more and that is why I thank you. For all they have done for us. From Evy
Thank you for teaching us that we can also save lives and help you.. Dilan
