CCFC’s 6th Summit

 

Consuming Kids

 

 

The Sexualization of Children and Other Commercial Calamities

 

April 3-5, 2008 ~ Wheelock College ~ Boston, MA 

..................................................

 

 

Since 2001 we have been bringing together distinguished scholars, activists, parents, and educators to talk about how marketing undermines children’s health and well-being and what we can do about it. The 2008 summit featured a special focus on how marketing contributes to the sexualization of children and youth.

 

On Thursday, April 3, at 7:30pm, the summit kicked off with the presentation of the 3rd annual Fred Rogers Integrity Award to Morgan Spurlock, director and star of the acclaimed film, SuperSize Me.  Friday and Saturday featured presentations and workshops on the impact of commercialization on children – and what we can do to stop it!
