Sydney Event - Friday 19 October, 2012 9am – 5pm
You are invited to a Generation Next Event - The Right 2 Childhood.
About this EventThe erosion of childhood is becoming a social and cultural trend of great concern to child development experts as well as the broader community. Commercialisation, sexualisation, body image dissatisfaction and over exposure to violent imagery are some of the key factors. A growing body of scientific evidence and expert opinion has transformed the debate about this trend into an important issue with major implications for mental health, public health, education and policy. We look forward to meeting you at this unique event.
Dr Ramesh Manocha, Convenor and Chairman
