The World Summit on Media for Children in Indonesia this year is a return of this major global event to the Asia-Pacific region.

The Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union and hosts Televisi Republik Indonesia (TVRI) are delighted to be partnering the WSMC Foundation in gathering together media, educators, regulators and everyone interested in media for children and young people in Jakarta from 6-8 July.

The Asia-Pacific region contains half the world’s population, a large percentage of which is younger people. Indonesia alone has more than 100-million people aged under 24 and more than a quarter of its total population – some 65-million – are aged under 14.

This year’s theme ‘Diverse media for diverse children’ tackles the major issues head-on, bringing experts and practitioners from around the world to look at issues such as what children are consuming and where, are broadcasters still able to attract young audiences and retain their position in the multimedia space, and what are the secrets of children’s programs that have endured over decades.

The summit will be interlaced with great examples of children’s programming that works, explained by the producers and children themselves. And one of the highlights will be a free-roaming forum of articulate and energetic young people from around the world to tell delegates what media they and their generation use and why, what they like and dislike and what they want more of. And they will tell us where we go wrong and what we can do better.

We look forward to welcoming you in Jakarta this July!

Opening Address

Adrian Mills

Chair, WSMC Foundation,

Children’s Media – an endangered species?

With declining audiences, and increased competition for attention as children and young people turn away from our industry, Adrian Mills argues that the current assumptions underpinning the creation and provision of media for children are no longer fit for purpose. Outdated, tired and overtaken by new players providing exhilarating new content on brand new platforms, the traditional children’s media industry has never been more marginalised, and at risk of extinction. In this deliberately provocative keynote, Mills sets out a challenge for the children’s industry and others – to radically reinvent ourselves or go the way of the dinosaurs and step aside to make way for a new species. The choice is ours to make.
