The Eurovision Youth News Exchange (YNE) is a daily multi-lateral exchange of items for children's' news programmes and magazines.
Usually daily or weekly, these programmes cover current events affairs from the child's perspective, in a language that children can understand, and clarifying the context and background of world events, to give children the tools to understand the news that they are exposed to through the media. The main objective is not to leave children unarmed in a society of communication where information would anyway reach them, and to help them to include "good news" and "bad news" in their vision of the world without traumas, in order to be able to grow up as conscious adults.
Followed by numerous children, often used in schools to educate the pupils to the understanding of current affairs, these programmes are also watched by adults who appreciate the clear and simple explanations.
Financed by EBU Members, that are active members, associate members and other non-members may gain access on a contractual basis.
