About the Summit
ABOUT THE CHILDREN’S GLOBAL MEDIA SUMMIT
Over the three-day Summit, sessions and keynotes will focus on five key themes: Innovation, Empowerment, Freedom, Entertainment and Education.
- Keynotes, panels and world-class research exploring the biggest questions in children’s media
- Insightful, influential and in-demand speakers from media and beyond
- Exhibitors showcasing content and technology
The Summit was founded in 1995 in order to help secure the future of children’s programming in a rapidly-changing world.
Formerly known as the ‘World Summit on Media for Children’, the Summit is held every three years, beginning in Australia.
London was the host city in 1998 and the last city to host the Summit was Kuala Lumpur in 2014.
For the first time, the content of the event is being curated by the BBC who are working with a group of broadcast partners, academic institutions and policymakers to create a rich and unique programme of content which reflects the world of media through the eyes of a young global audience.
