Panel III: Next Generation Peacebuilders
With a recent survey from the Kaiser Family Foundation finding that American children are exposed to almost 11 hours of multimedia per day—and parallel trends emerging abroad—the future of media and intergroup relations are increasingly intertwined. High media exposure can correlate to bad grades, just as watching violent images can lead to violent behavior. This panel will explore recommendations for deepening our commitment to developing next generation peacebuilders when digital media platforms are driving skyrocketing media consumption among youth globally.
