Experts gathering for children’s media summit

World experts on children and media will lead two days of panel discussions and workshops next month when Asia hosts its first ever World Summit on Media for Children.

The 7th WSMC with the theme Media for 21st Century Children will take place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from 8-10 September 2014. 

Organised by the ABU and the WSMC Foundation and hosted by Radio Television Malaysia (RTM), organisers expect more than 1,000 producers, broadcasters, media regulators, educators and community leaders committed to the improvement of quality media for children.

The summit will provide unique opportunities for networking, debates and workshops on content for program creators, educators, policy makers, digital media innovators and people working in the field of childhood development. It will celebrate children’s creativity and development through media and will focus on quality content and the role and meaning of education in a globalised modern media environment.

It will also be a chance for media professionals to see how children see the media, use technologies and envisage their future. The summit will culminate in a Charter of Guiding Principles for children’s media.

More information and registration can be obtained at the Summit website.
