Children & Youth Annual Meeting (9:15-17:00)
The Annual Meeting is a unique event that gives Members the chance to increase their knowledge, to share content and best practice, and to discuss ways of collaborating in an increasingly commercially driven industry. This year's event will focus on the way young people consume content and how to reach them, as they are moving away from traditional linear viewing. The agenda will as well address the vital theme of “Refugees” and how crucial it is for PSM to instil in children the importance of inclusion and respecting difference. This meeting will finally explore the core social media platforms being used by 8-13 year olds and how they are being used; and the issue of Media Literacy.
