Young people taking charge of media (MKK 2012)

20/12/2012

7 MKKAfter intense planning and a busy week the 12th Annual Media Kidocracy Konfrence (MKK2012) came to an end on Friday, the 14th of December 2012.

About 80 youth delegates (aged 12 – 21) drawn from all over the country, SADC and as far away as Northern Ireland attended MKK.

Below are the “products” which showcase how the young people interpreted the various themes outlined for this year. For a large percentage of the delegates this was the first time they had been directly involved in the production of media. A strong element of all the MKK conferences have been linking a practical implementation of ideas generated in the various intensive panel discussions and workshop groups.

This year’s theme was Youth Participation in Democracy, with sub-themes being:

  • Youth Rights and Civic Participation – Human Rights
  • Economic Freedom – Labour
  • My Body, My Choice – Health
  • Express Yourself – Arts and Culture
  • Who am I – Gender
  • My Future World – Environment

Bush Radio would like to thank our partners; the Media Development and Diversity Agency (MDDA) and the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung – Media (FES Media) for their support as well as The British Council, Media24, Mara Media, CVET, GCIS, Public Acheivement, Samantha Reinders, MAK1 and Netdynamix.

This is a repost of a story that appeared on Bushradio News

About 100 young delegates have gathered at Bush Radio’s 12th Media Kidocracy Konference (MKK) in Worcester.

This year’s theme is Youth Participation in Democracy, with sub-themes being Human Rights, Labour, Health, Arts and Culture, Gender, and Environment.   
The opening address for the conference was presented by Bush Radio’s Managing Director, Brenda Leonard, where she gave an insight into the history of the conference and the outline of the days to follow.
MDDA CEO, Lumko Mtimde

Media Development and Diversity Agency CEO Lumko Mtimde said the gathering such as MKK is important especially today since its International Human Rights Day.  He urged delegates to know their rights that are in our constitution.

Mtimde added that MDDA saw it fit to partner with Bush Radio for MKK in order for the delegates to understand the importance of media so that as young people they can participate actively in our democracy.
MDDA CEO Lumko Mtimde encouraged the young delegates to use the next few days at the conference to learn as much as possible so that they can actively participate in their community. 
Communications expert, Trevor Davids

Advisor for Communications for the IEC Trevor Davids also gave some insight into how the election and registration process works.

Davids added that one person can make a difference because that one person can be the difference between a win or a lost for a party.
Busi Sikosana a former MKK and Children’s Radio Education Workshop (CREW) participant also shared her experience of being part of the , South Africa’s leading children and youth radio and media project, CREW founded in 1996
