Alana Institute’s initiatives are based on actions for the defense and promotion of children’s rights and full development in childhood. It also directs all its programs based on the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
The axis of the programs are: legal support to influence the formulation and implementation of public policies, communication of excellence on the issues that affect the many Brazilian childhoods, as well as national and international mobilization, organized to achieve systemic impacts.
Children and Consumption
Since 2006, the Children and Consumption program is dedicated to disseminating and debating ideas about issues related to advertising aiming at children, developing actions to mainly prevent and lessen the damages resulting from this commercial exploitation.
Children and Nature
The program’s objective is to contribute so that children, especially those in the urban context, grow and develop in direct contact with nature. Guided by climate and socio-environmental justice, its strategies and intersectoral actions involve research, experiments, and advocacy in public policies.
