Content, empowerment and shaping the future generation: BBFC panel event

This month, we hosted our first ever panel event for our charity partners and key stakeholders in which we explored how children and young people’s experiences over the last few months in lockdown will affect the way they consume media and content in the future.

Hosted by journalist and former politician Gloria De Piero, our expert panel included; our Chief Executive, David Austin; renowned psychologist, Dr Linda Papadopolous; the Head of Editorial Standards at BBC Children’s and Education, Catherine McAllister; PSHE Association Senior Subject Specialist, Jenny Fox; and Noah, an Into Film Young Reporter.

What followed was an open and honest discussion about the world of children’s media and insightful information for parents and teachers about how you can help the children in your life make decisions that are right for them.
