Through a Child's Eye: Creating Images with the Next Generation

25 June 2012, 4:00 p.m., Room F/G
Hosted by
World Catholic Association for Communication (SIGNIS)

Learning by doing: Thinking outside-the-box and outside the “classroom”, this panel aims to explore ways of mainstreaming media education and how media awareness can serve as a means of equipping the next generation with the background knowledge, skills and basic journalistic values to be responsible consumers and producers of media. The workshop will spotlight media monitoring by children and young people and their expressions of how they see themselves represented in the media. In today's world, ordinary citizens are simultaneously consumers and producers of media images, none more so than the young. Even more importantly, these processes can inspire children and young people to make their voices heard and contribute to holding the media to account.
