Let’s Connect & Exchange
Virtual PRIX JEUNESSE Conference
14 / 15 June 2021
While the worldwide pandemic still has a grip on all of us, we would like to bring the world of children’s TV together in this non-festival year. In a two day conference on 14th /15th June you will have a chance on the first day to learn about news for children. On the second day the winners and runners’ up of PRIX JEUNESSE INTERNATIONAL 2020 will talk about their newest projects and tell how they are managing in these challenging pandemic times.
The two conference days will take place on the video conference platform MS Teams.
The detailed schedule of the two days will be posted on this website soon.
Day 1, 14 June, 11:30 – 17:00 CET:
They Deserve to Know: News for Children
Children need children’s news that give them the chance to understand and adequately assess current events happening around them.
At the same time, however, it must be remembered that children’s views to the world and frames of reference usually differ from those of adults. Therefore, we need to ask:
- Which pieces of news are relevant to children?
- Which topics are children really interested in?
- How should children’s news explain big current issues in a simple way to make them understandable for children?
In this workshop, researchers will present their recent studies on children’s news and renowned children’s TV makers from around the world will discuss what quality means in this context.
Day 2, 15 June, 11:30 – 19:30 CET
