Young Reporters at the UN
This activity offers young people the opportunity to visit the UN as budding journalists and attend a press conference organized mainly for them. A moderator and speakers from various international organizations will make a presentation and respond to questions.
Press conferences for young people
Press conferences are organized specially for Secondary II pupils. They take place once a month and cover a different theme each time. Speakers and experts from various international organizations are invited to share their expertise on current affairs. Young reporters attend the press conference, take notes and ask questions as if they are journalists.
During and/or after the conferences, the reporters' mission is to spread information whether to their class, school or through their personal network. They can do that by writing a press article, participating in a radio program, making a video report or by engaging through social networks. This activity can be done individually or by class.
Work done by the young reporters
10 articles on the Convention on the Rights of the Child
Children have had rights for 30 years. On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, 10 young reporters from Collège Voltaire wrote articles on the subject, taking stock of the situation, between rejoicing and challenges for the future.
Gender equality at work
Students from the CEC André-Chavanne wrote several articles on the gender equality session.
Articles will be selected each semester to be published in the UN magazine UN Special. A certificate of participation will be given to reporters who have attended at least 3 conferences.
