UNICEF and GolinHarris are promoting kids rights in mass-media

Marketing, PR

GolinHarris developed, pro bono, for UNICEF, the 1st project of information that aims to respect children’s rights in mass-media.

“Children’s rights” program was launched following a study made by UNICEF Romania last year regarding the way the Romanian press is respecting children’s rights during the editorial process. The mentioned study showed that 16% of the written press articles and TV news do not respected kid’s rights, unveiling their identity, using a depreciating language, full of stereotypes, and showing a total lack of interest for kid’s public image

Children are vulnerable and their protection is each and every one of us responsability. As we lack a regulations that will make kids’ rights to be respected, our mission and our communicaiton partners mission is crucial. We want that, through this initiative, to inform and to transform our message in key component of any journalistic act
