Could you please send this invitation below to the media-l list ?
Good morning Media Educators,
Québec is still the only jurisdiction in North America where
advertising to kids has been illegal for more than 30 years.
What are the benefits?
Why would society allow professional marketers to target children
using modern psychology and neurology?
Which advertisers were sued and preferred pleading guilty before
facing the judge?
Are there more damages for which marketing industries carry
responsibility for targeting children and teens?
What are the SOLUTIONS?
This unprecedented conference will allow participants to debate how we
can reduce the negative influence of marketers on our most vulnerable
YWCA Montreal, Edupax and ACME (Action Coalition for Media Education)
are pleased to invite you to the 2nd Conference on the IMPACTS of
SCREEN OVEREXPOSURE on YOUNG PEOPLE'S HEALTH: the FACTS, the DAMAGES,
the SOLUTIONS in downtown Montréal, May 4, 5 and 6, 2011.
Thirty speakers from Québec, New Mexico, Louisiana, Michigan, New
York, California, British Columbia, Ontario, and France have agreed to
