News on Children, Youth and Media in the World No. 2, 2012, from the International Clearinghouse on Children, Youth and Media is now available on our website.
In this issue we present articles about e.g. a study on the TV coverage of the earthquake in Chile 2010, media education to promote youth civic engagement in the favelas of Rio, developments in video game
classification in Australia, and more. We are also grateful to the two student reporters of children's newspaper The Peace Gong for their contribution on how peace and non-violence can be promoted through children's media platforms. Recent reports are also presented as well as news briefs on current conferences. It is our hope that the newsletter will offer interesting reading!
