UNCRC wants kids’ input for discussion of digital media

2014 Day of General Discussion: Digital Media and Children’s rights

The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child is holding its Day of General Discussion (DGD) in Geneva on 12 September 2014. The topic for this year’s discussion will be “Digital media and children’s rights”. The Committee is inviting children and teens (under 18 years old) to share their opinions and experiences before the day (they can also participate via Facebook and Twitter during the event).

Before the DGD children can: write to the Committee, send a report, make a short film or create a Storify page. The two main themes will be: Access to digital media and ICT, and Children’s participation and education online.

All opinions should be sent to crc-dgd@ohchr.org by 5 September 2014. Find out more in this link.
