ZOOM Talk – The Social Dilemma: How Digital Media Undermines Young People’s Wellbeing & What We Can Do About It

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 9 | 7 PM EST | FREE

Click HERE to Register

Join Larissa Rhodes, producer of the new hit film, The Social Dilemma in conversation with Josh Golin and Jean Rogers of Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood. Featuring former Facebook, Google, and Twitter employees, The Social Dilemma reveals how the business model for digital media exacerbates some of the most pressing problems we face today, including misinformation, polarization, and a host of problems related to social media overuse. Not surprisingly, children and young people are most susceptible to the techniques social media companies use to keep us endlessly scrolling and posting.

Larissa, Jean and Josh will share clips from the film and discuss what we can do —  as families, communities, and a society – to keep digital media from interfering with children’s healthy development.

While it is recommended that attendees watch The Social Dilemma on Netflix prior to the December 9th discussion, it is not necessary.

ABOUT CAMPAIGN FOR A COMMERCIAL FREE CHILDHOOD

CCFC is the leading nonprofit organization committed to helping children thrive in an increasingly commercialized, screen-obsessed culture, and the only organization dedicated to ending marketing to children. Our advocacy is grounded in the overwhelming evidence that child-targeted marketing – and the excessive screen time it encourages – undermines kids’ healthy development.

No other organization our size stands up for kids the way we can. Since our founding by Dr. Susan Linn in 2000, CCFC has grown from a small group of concerned parents, health professionals, and educators into a powerful force for children and families. Our unique approach helps puts kids’ wellbeing first at home, in communities, and in corporate boardrooms.

Working closely with policymakers, health and child development experts, and our nearly 40,000 members, we’re bringing to life a new vision of childhood — one shaped by what’s best for kids, not what’s best for profits. https://commercialfreechildhood.org/
