A great opportunity for parents and teachers to engage with a leading expert on the commercialisation of childhood
Tuesday 7th May, 2019
7:15pm - 8:45pm
FREE event (must register)

One of the most pervasive and troubling problems associated with children’s screen time is that most of the platforms and media aimed at kids are rife with overt and covert advertising. In this sebinar, Dr. Susan Linn, founder of the Campaign for Commercial-Free Childhood and author of Consuming Kids will talk about how apps, games and digital devices benefit marketers at the expense of children.

In addition, Susan will discuss:

- The ways that children are developmentally vulnerable to advertising

- The sophisticated data collection and marketing techniques corporations routinely use to target kids on digital devices

- Why children need us to create better policies to protect them from corporate marketing

- Practical steps families can take to limit the harmful effects of commercialism on their children
