Session 1

[ Can Media Help Children Who Suffer? ]
Bullying, poverty, domestic violence, homelessness. A large number of Japan Prize 2016 entries inform us that children are suffering in difficult social situations. A young refugee wanders far from his homeland; children suffer from violence at the hands of their parents. What can we media producers do to help? And how should these situations be treated in the context of educational content? In this session, we will discuss the background of those entries, and explore the possibilities of educational content designed to help children who are suffering.
