The organisers expect more than 2,000 producers, broadcasters, media regulators, educators and community leaders committed to the improvement of quality media for children.
The World Summit in Kuala Lumpur aims to achieve a greater understanding of developments in children’s media around the world and to raise the status of children’s programming and draw to the attention of key people in production and distribution the importance of issues relating to children and young people. The Summit will culminate with a Charter of Guiding Principles for children’s media and assist in providing opportunities for quality children’s programming in the future.
