e3 and Unicef UK are delighted to announce their silver win in the category of best use of digital by a charity, NGO or NFP for its work on Unicef UK's Child Rights Launchpad. The award was presented at the Digital Impact Award ceremony on 14th October at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square.
Unicef UK's Child Rights Launch Pad (https://launchpad.unicef.org.uk/) takes children and young people on an exciting journey to explore and enjoy their rights.

Children's rights are more important than ever in today's complex world, and we need to develop more creative and exciting ways to get these messages across.
