The Children’s Rights Didactic Path was inaugurated on Thursday October 20th, 2005, with a show by the primary school pupils of Bramois. It has since been visited by numerous families and classes. The Didactic Path is the way for IDE to offer a 45 minutes flat and gentle walk, on asphalt and grass.

This walk is meant to raise awareness among young and old about Children’s Rights. The track and the message conveyed are accessible to everybody.

Where is it located?

The first billboard stands near IDE’s premises, in Bramois, in the outskirts of Sion. The walk goes on northwards along the Borgne River to end at the SUVA / Hopital regional compound.

The Didactic Path illustrates 12 articles of the Convention (out of 54); it features animals to introduce children's rights in images. The twelve billboards (Fr) have also been published in the form of a popular book: "Droits d’enfants" by Léopoldine Gorret – IDE Publishing for the Chidlren’s Right Didactic Path.
