2nd World Summit -UK 1998

The Second World Summit on Television for Children was hosted by the BBC, Channel 4, ITV and Nickelodeon UK and chaired by Anna Home. It brought together 1,600 representatives from 82 countries to explore the main themes of funding, regulation, co-production and newmedia. It broadened the scope of the Summit movement to include other media beyond television. Another innovation was the parallel children’s event involving 31 international junior delegates which produced a Children’s Charter on Electronic Media.
