86% of children think it’s important that they know what’s going on in the world. Yet, only 9% of you think that you do know very much.
These survey findings were revealed at the launch of a report into children’s media on Tuesday.
The IBT (International Broadcasting Trust), who carried out research with First News and Unicef, want children in the UK to grow up with access to interesting media that informs you about the wider world.
They want TV channels to do a better job of making good programmes for you, especially about the lives of children in other countries. Check out the news show we make with Sky Kids at first.news/fyi. Your teachers might even let you watch it in class!
The Government has set up a new fund to promote new content and to improve what’s on offer for young people. The thing is, right now, young people are watching an average of 15 hours of videos online every week – most of it on YouTube.
So, what do you think would make you watch more telly, and less online? Let us know at news[email protected]news.co.uk.
