TV producers get together to plan third season of CARE documentaries

Television documentary-makers from 15 Asia-Pacific broadcasters are about to launch the third season of the ABU’s Change Asia, Rescue Earth (CARE) development program.

More than 30 participants will be meeting in Kuala Lumpur for three days from 16 March 2013 to plan, develop and schedule the production of individual documentaries, this year on the theme of “Youth & Future”. 

CARE is a documentary co-production project of the ABU which was initiated by Korean Broadcasting System (KBS). It aims to inform the public about the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as well as to promote media social responsibility to make this place a better place for all.

The two previous CARE seasons have been centred on the overall aims of the MDGs in CARE1 and Empowering Women in Care2.

The CARE3 meeting precedes “The Asian Side of the Doc (ASD)” conference in Kuala Lumpur, the first time Malaysia will have hosted an international documentary pitching event.
