The Intergenerational Dialogue forum was organized by the local organization Young People in the Media (YPM) as a way to promote children’s rights through the media. Throughout the forum, several key speeches by leaders such as Victor George from Unique FM, and Fanta Bai Secka, director of the Department of Social Welfare, confirmed The Gambia’s commitment to promoting youth voices and advocating for children’s issues in the media.
