For Børns Vilkår
With Max Knutsson
Surveys of danish 9th graders show, that 69% feel negative pressure of tests, exams and grades. Further studies reveal indications that students become familiar with mental illness far more and far earlier, than it has ever been recorded. The problem seems that grades have become more important than actually learning, to the faculty that governs it.
We set out to create a conversation starter, that could help Børns Vilkår raise awareness about the rise in mental disorders in young students.
We wanted to create a symbolic piece, which on it's own, could tell the story of a generation.
This is our process.
