TV Children and Youth Experts

The TV Children and Youth Experts Group reunites all the heads of children and youth departments within EBU Member organizations. All together, this represents some 80 experts. The TV Children and Youth Experts Group elects a programme group (bureau) every two years.

The TV Children and Youth Experts Group meets once a year in plenary session.

The Plenary meeting involves professional discussions (on different themes each year) covering subjects which are current and of interest in the field of children's programming, agenda matters involving discussions and updates on ongoing coproductions in the field of animation and fiction, a pitching session, updates on the pre-school item exchange (Erfurt exchange) and many other items.
