THEME: Celebrating Childrens Media- Achievements
Worldwide children watch more television and films than adults. But owing to funding imperatives, production and programming tend to appeal more to adults than children. Yet investors know that commercials that target children can also reap lucrative returns. Moreover, todays listening and viewing child is tomorrows paying and buying parent. Childrens programmes thus constitute a worthy investment for production houses. The Summit will explore some success stories in childrens programmes as models of excellence as well as strategies to enhance childrens media. In addition, the Summit will look at ways and means to advance Summit resolutions with regard to the media as a tool for advancing global peace and enhancing participatory democracy. In the final analysis, it will be the children who will reconfigure the new parameters of our global citizenship.
