News for the Young Audience

Natural disasters, humanitarian crises or big sports events are noticed by children. It is important to explain the top news appropriately for children, in a pedagogic and playful way to help them understand difficult issues.

Our offer also contains reports about topics such as animals, nature, technology, music, movies, stars and history. All stories are specifically tailored for the young audience.

Playfully crafted news stories are also an excellent way to increase children's knowledge about highly relevant societal issues. These may include for example violence prevention, school education, women's rights and the fight against racism.

Every week, our editors write around a dozen pieces including explanatory features as well as interviews with experts. They focus on the most important events worldwide and explain them in detail to their audience of 10 to 12 year olds.
