Upcoming Webinars

Reaching Young Readers with Print

Presented By Nicky Cox, MBE, Editor-in-chief, First News, UK

About this Webinar

First News is a UK newspaper for children/young readers (aged 7-14). It is published in a full colour tabloid format every Friday, and aims to present current events and politics in a child-friendly format, alongside news on entertainment, sport and computer games.
In this INMA Webinar, Nicky Cox will talk about her commitment to providing children with a true, trustworthy source of news and to giving them a platform to discuss issues that are important to them; like climate-change. Nicky says “children make up 27% of the world's people but 100% of the future; yet often struggle to be heard. Children have as much right to know what’s going on in the world as adults.”
Nicky will discuss the original 2006 launch of First News and how the title has evolved over time and grown into a multi-platform offering and teaching resource for schools. Each week 2.6m children now read First News. The paper reaches more readers than The Times, The Telegraph, and The Guardian put together.
Maybe this could be a new opportunity for your organisation and a rebirth of the print format. Perhaps a venture to reach a new audience?
