Youth in Cameroon learn video reporting for the ICDB

17/03/2010

Broadcasting organization Ydé Cameroon first participated in the ICDB in 2007.  Alex Kotna, President of the Youth TV Assocation at Ydé Cameroon, recently wrote to us with a follow-up to their ICDB activities this year:

“We organised workshops for secondary school students, working with the news clubs to teach video reporting. At the end the students produced two videos reports. I also hope our national television will show the youth video reports on Sunday in their great live programm which is called Tam Tam Weekend.”

On 7 March 2010, we invite radio and television broadcasters to celebrate the ICDB and highlight programming by, for and about children.  The theme is “All Rights All Children.”

As the Convention of the Rights of the Child (CRC) marks its 20th anniversary, UNICEF highlights the rights that all children deserve.  Whether it is a quality education or a safe home, adequate food and drinking water or the ability to participate in society, children should get what they need to become strong members of society.

How do young people find out about their rights and responsibilities? Today, media is one of the most widely recognized ways to reach young people.  Broadcasters have the responsibility to highlight issues that face children and to open young people’s eyes to opportunities and rights that may not be known to them.

The International Children’s Day of Broadcasting (ICDB) was created to give exposure to issues of children’s rights.  Over the years, it has also has become a day of celebrating young people in the media.
