In the Service of Young People?
For the present yearbook, the Clearinghouse has tried to assemble contributions by researchers from different parts of the world in order to shed light on issues of vital importance that arise when dealing with a subject such as ’media in the service of young people’. The first part of the contains articles by eminent scholars active on different continents. These articles exhibit theoretical visions and empirical examples of what constitutes – and what does not constitute – media and media contents in the service of children and youth. The researchers also reflect on measures for improving young people’s media situation in the digital age. In the second part of the book, the Clearinghouse presents various efforts to increase media and information/Internet literacy among young people, parents, media educators and media professionals by providing examples of activities, projects and resources in many countries.
