5th World Summit on Media for Children 2007,
Media as a Tool for Global Peace and Democracy
The fifth World Summit on Media for Children (5WSMC) takes place 24 - 28 March 2007 in South Africa around the key theme "Media as a tool for global peace and democracy." A sub theme of the summit is “Sport as a Peace Builder.” The summit includes workshops and master-classes for young sport journalists in the run up to 2010.
The 5WSMC is organised by the Children and Broadcasting Foundation for Africa, in partnership with SABC, the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA), and the Department of Communications and with support from Telkom and the MDDA.
The 5WSMC brings together 1000 local and international media professionals, government and NGOs working in the area of quality media for children with a specific aim of developing a comprehensive children's media policy framework with sustainable solutions for high quality content. Radio, being the most popular mass communications medium, will play a prominent role in the summit.
Three hundred local and international children, ages 13 -16, will also participate in the event in all areas of media development, production and distribution. Shaa'ista Bulbulia from South Africa is organising the children's part of the summit. If you’d like to help or participate, contact her at: email@example.com.
