“Dreaming of Freedom”
This song was composed by children from the “Dante Alighieri” Middle School, Turin (Italy) in the framework of IPEC’s “Supporting Children’s Rights through Education, the Arts and the Media” (SCREAM) programme. With the support of the Province of Turin and the Region of Piemonte, the association “Young Frontiers” has been implementing SCREAM in the region for many years. Hundreds of children and youth, from schools and the Juvenile Justice Centre of Piemonte, have been encouraged to channel their energy and creativity in support of the campaign against child labour. This song is one of the results of their work. Dreaming of Freedom, which was officially presented at the International Book Fair in Turin in 2011, sends out a resounding message that we must act now to end child labour.
