All over the world, children and young people are contributing to a range of TV programmes, radio shows, newspapers, websites and other media projects, getting their voices heard and putting their hopes and concerns into the public arena.



The MAGIC website is UNICEF's (United Nations Children's Fund) response to the Oslo Challenge of 1999, which called on media professionals, educators, governments, organizations, parents, children and young people themselves to recognize the enormous potential of media to make the world a better place for children.

Your rights, your challenge

 

The Oslo Challenge makes special reference to children and young people and their relationship with the media, and there are several ways to get involved.

 

Finding out about the rights of children and young people, and what can be done to make sure that these are fulfilled, is a starting point. Under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, for example, children and young people have the right to have their views listened to and taken seriously, in all matters that concern them, and have the right to express themselves freely. The Know Your Rights section on this page provides further information.

The Challenge calls on children and young people to learn as much about the media as they can to help them in their choice of media and make sure they benefit from the media as much as possible. One way of doing this is through getting involved in making TV and radio programmes, magazines and other media production. The Make Your Way in the Media section on this page provides a starting point.

 

The Oslo Challenge also calls on children and young people to share their opinions about the media. The Have Your Say section on this page offers some useful weblinks.

Throughout this section of the site there are opportunities to send in details of useful websites, news items about children and the media and other information, to share with other children and young people.
