NAPCAN’s Green Child Protection Week Posters
For over 30 years NAPCAN has run National Child Protection week. The campaign aims to engage, educate and empower Australians to understand the complexity of child abuse and neglect and work together to prevent it.
NAPCAN believes that everyone has a part to play in preventing family violence, including religious and community leaders, artists and men and boys. This is why they created these Kidpower Put Safety First Commitment Posters.
Green is the colour of life
In nature, green is associated with life, fertility, health, spring and hope. It is also the colour of money and wealth. In Western culture, it can also have negative associations such as envy (‘green with envy’) and boredom (“I’m feeling a bit green around the gills”).
National Child Protection Week is an annual campaign run by NAPCAN to help people understand the complexity of child abuse and neglect and work together to prevent it. Their mantra is ‘Every child in every community needs a fair go’.
NAPCAN is asking the public to join them during CPW 2023 by wearing a green ribbon or hand brooch and participating in a variety of activities including a school art competition, NAPCAN’s Child Safety Week Activity Booklet and colouring sheet, Acts of Kindness Challenge and more. They will also be hosting a webinar titled Listening deeply to what First Nations can teach us about child protection led by Professor Judy Atkinson – Jiman & Bundjalung woman and Kylie Captain – Gamilaroi woman.
Green is the colour of hope
The colour green is associated with hope because it symbolizes nature and rebirth. It can bring feelings of harmony and love, and inspire your creativity and imagination. The color is also known to help you calm down and focus on the present moment. It can also increase your self-worth and boost your sense of purpose.
National Child Protection Week (NCPW) is an annual campaign coordinated by NAPCAN. The organisation aims to raise awareness and educate Australians about the importance of protecting children. This includes encouraging families to talk about their feelings and discussing the best ways to keep children safe.
The campaign uses a variety of resources, including graphics, social media posts and sample proclamations. The organisation also holds events to highlight the issues. The NCPW website also features information on child abuse and neglect statistics and the services that can help prevent it. It also encourages community involvement in NCPW’s core message: “protecting children is everyone’s business”.
Green is the colour of love
National Child Protection Week is an annual event that takes place in September to promote the safety and wellbeing of Australian children. It aims to engage, educate, and empower Australians to understand the complexity of child abuse and neglect and work together to prevent it. It also provides a platform for communities to talk about these issues without fear.
In many religions, the colour green represents love and life. This is because it reminds us that all children are precious and God loves them. Therefore, it is our responsibility to protect them and help them grow.
This year’s National Child Protection Week is themed ‘Every child, in every community, needs a fair go.’ During the week, NAPCAN will be hosting a series of webinars and events to raise awareness about child abuse and neglect. You can find more information about these events and how to get involved here. You can also join in the NT Acts of Kindness Challenge.
Green is the colour of unity
National Child Protection Week is a nationwide campaign to promote child safety. This campaign aims to mobilise all sectors of society to uphold children’s rights and to create safe environments for them. It is an important initiative as it raises awareness about the dangers of neglect and abuse. It also encourages people to act on these issues and help prevent them.
During the campaign, people wear green ribbons to show their support for children. The colour represents life and growth and shows that people are united in their efforts to tackle child abuse. Wearing the green ribbon also lets victims and survivors know that they are supported.
This year, the Camden community will be marking National Child Protection Week by organising events and activities. These include children’s craft afternoons, puppet shows and a walk of silence to support victims. The theme of this year’s event is “Where we start matters”.
