On 1 March 2009, we invite television and radio broadcasters around the world to Unite for Children: Tune in to Kids! What do children and young people care about most? What are their values, fears and dreams? Many children around the world share the same ideals, even if their lives are vastly different. Tune in to Kids! will give us a platform to hear their opinions, see their perspectives and listen to their stories.
Broadcasters can create special programming for the day or package existing programming as a marathon ICDB event. Invite youth into the studio to host programmes and talk shows or have young reporters interview local politicians. UNICEF can provide logos, graphics, spots and short programming to help shape and brand ICDB specials. UNICEF can also help connect broadcasters with local youth media organizations that are looking for an outlet for their television and radio productions.
If you are a broadcaster or a youth media group and you are planning an activity for the ICDB, we want you to share it here. That way, we can see what people are up to around the world and other broadcasters and organizations can get inspired as well.

We can’t wait to see what you have planned!
