Celebrate the International Children's Day of Broadcasting 2010!
The Center on Media and Child Health celebrates the International Children's Day of Broadcasting by joining other efforts around the world to ensure that children's needs and rights are addressed and protected via use of media. CMCH thrives to improve the understanding of how media affect children’s health in positive and negative ways. Our work is centered around that idea that media are the single most powerful influence on the health and development of children, and it has tremendous potential to empower children make informed decisions about their media use.
The International Children’s Day of Broadcasting (ICDB) was created in 1991 to give exposure to the issue of children’s
rights and how television and radio can become meaningful, positive
media experiences for children and young people. The event is
celebrated every year and over the years, it also has become a day of
celebrating young people in the media. This year's theme is “All
Rights, All Children.” Check out the ICBD 2010 website for materials and to learn more about what other broadcasters around the world are doing.
