Event Description

The Federal Trade Commission staff will host a forum on March 12, 2009 to gather input for its advertising literacy initiative, which will educate and empower tweens to be better informed consumers of information. At the forum, experts on advertising and marketing to kids will discuss a range of issues, including:

  • What kids experience in the commercial world;
  • What kids understand about their experience; and
  • What kids need to know to navigate in this world.

The goal of the campaign is to educate kids to be better informed consumers of information. The FTC staff invites interested parties to participate by attending in person or via webcast.
